Heat the coconut oil in a large pan over a medium heat and add the curry paste.

Cook gently for 2-3 minutes or until fragrant.

Add the onion and a pinch of salt, then cook for 10 minutes until translucent.

Add the coriander stalks, ginger, garlic and 1/2 the chilli, then cook for 2 minutes.

Tip in the butternut squash, stock and a little more seasoning, and simmer for 30 minutes until the squash is very tender.

Add the lime juice, then use a hand blender to whizz until completely smooth.

Divide between bowls, then top with the coriander leave and remaining chopped chilli.
