Dice yellow onion, mince cloves of garlic, and grate fresh ginger
Heat a large skillet over medium, then add olive oil along with the onion, garlic, and ginger. Sauté over medium for a few minutes, or until the onions are translucent. Add curry powder and ground cumin, and continue to sauté for about one minute more.
Add fire-roasted diced tomatoes and water to the skillet. Stir to combine and dissolve the brown bits off the bottom of the skillet.
Add the diced butternut squash and stir to combine. Place a lid on the skillet and let the squash simmer in the sauce for about 10 minutes, or just until fork-tender. Don’t overcook the squash or it will begin to break down into a mash as you finish the dish.
Once the squash is tender, add full-fat coconut milk. Stir to combine and allow the sauce to heat through.
Once the sauce is hot again, add fresh spinach and stir to combine. Allow the spinach to wilt in the hot sauce.
Season the curry with salt, starting with ¼ tsp and adding more to your liking. Keep in mind that salt doesn’t just make things taste salty, it actually helps other flavors pop and allows your tongue to detect and distinguish flavors
