I know . . . bananas? But they cut the spicy and add a cool sweet morsel of surprise goodness to the hearty stew. I serve it with biscuits or naan bread, depending on whether we are feeling cultured or down-home!

  • Pour chicken broth, water, and coconut milk into the pot; add butternut squash, diced tomatoes with green chile peppers, and coconut. Bring the liquid to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook the soup at a simmer until the squash is soft, about 40 minutes.

  • Stir sliced bananas into the soup; simmer until soft, about 5 minutes more.

Cook's Note:

For a more spicy stew, add black pepper and cayenne.
