Grilled Acorn Squash with Tomato Curry Chutney

Grilled Acorn Squash with Tomato Curry Chutney

We grill and cook outdoors a lot in the summer. When I made this recipe, it was stinking hot out and there was no way any of this was happening inside my hot house. The squash was done on the grill and chutney done on the Coleman stove; this whole grilled acorn squash with tomato curry chutney was done completely outdoors! You don’t have to do it that way, but there is something tasty about cooking outside. Bring this recipe camping with you and I bet it’ll be even better!

Start by making the tomato curry chutney as it takes some time. 

I had an amazing chutney over Easter at my best friend’s house and I knew the Edmonton Cooks, cookbook had one as well, so I decided to give it a whirl. This recipe is loosely based off the Edmonton Cooks version, but decreased the garlic and ginger, used fresh tomatoes, decreased the amount of salt, used curry powder instead of paste, green chutney from a bottle instead of sambal oelek and didn’t use vanilla or fennel.

Gather the ingredients, and start by sautéing the garlic, onion, ginger and olive oil in a small pan for about 10 mins.

Next add in the remaining ingredients, mix well and let simmer for about 60 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the chutney has thickened. Set aside and let cool. If this is where you are stopping, you can store your chutney in the fridge for 3 – 4 days, or process it in jars to store for months! See my tomato salsa recipe for how to process.
