> 1 (14 oz) pkg Nature's Promise® Organic Butternut Squash Chunks
> 2 tbsp olive oil
> 1 onion, chopped

Cut the butternut squash into smaller pieces. In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat the oil on medium-high. Add the onion and cook 4–6 min., until onion is softened, stirring frequently. To pot, add the garlic, ginger, and cayenne, if using. Season with salt and pepper. Cook 30 sec., stirring constantly. Stir in the vegetable broth, scraping up any browned bits with a wooden spoon.
Bring mixture to a boil. To pot, add the butternut squash, reduce heat to a simmer, and cook 10–12 min., until fork-tender. Season with salt and pepper. In batches, stir in the kale until wilted.
To Dutch oven, add the coconut milk and peanut butter, stirring to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with the chopped peanuts, if desired.
