Friends, you’ve heard me talk about hygge (pronounced “hoo-gah” ). It’s the uber-trendy Danish concept of coziness, which reminds me of this Homemade Green Curry Butternut Squash with Fish recipe that I’m sharing today. It also reminds me of my recent trip to Denmark (which I’ll be sharing more on soon!)

The leaves are falling and the gloomy evenings are upon us. Have you noticed how dark it’s getting now? It makes me want to curl up with a bowl of soup, or something hot and comforting for dinner.

Homemade Green Curry

This green curry recipe is creamy, rich, and so fresh—makrut lime leaves and lemongrass are a must for bringing an authentic flavor to this dish!

You can find these ingredients in an Asian market or ordered on Amazon.

This recipe takes a little time, but why not take the time to make a dish that is so good (and great as leftovers).

Homemade Green Curry Butternut with Fish

The key to a great lunch or dinner “bowl” is to start with a great base, whether it’s brown rice, quinoa, a combo of the two. This recipe today is served over brown rice!

We love to cook brown rice in our instant pot multi-cooker, but did you know you can also buy it frozen at Trader Joe’s? It’s really yummy, and all you do is microwave it (if you are in a pinch).

Start with fresh veggies.

Serve in large bowls. We have 12 of these larger bowls and they are great for curries, soup, stew, or “bowls,” which we make quite often.

Running out of time

Another option is to use pre-made green curry paste for a quicker meal preparation!

Here are four tips for experiencing hygge in your kitchen this fall:

  • Serve a comfort dish. With plenty of fall harvest foods, like pears, green beans, butternut squash, and peppers, make a homemade green curry sauce to serve with these veggies and fish. We love tilapia or rockfish for this recipe.
  • Light candles at the dinner table. Candles add a warmth and glow and a cozy feel to the table. Dim the lights and enjoy!
  • Set the table for every meal. Set a simple table at every meal, with (paper?) napkins and your favorite drink. There’s something about a set table that makes it feel cozy and special (rather than an unset table with no preparation).
  • Gather your people. Invite people you love over for a home-cooked meal, followed by great conversation. You can also play games around the table or watch a movie. Don’t forget these charcuterie ideas—a super fun way to bring people together!
