Butternut Squash, Lentil and Spinach Curry


  • 320 g butternut squash (just the flesh)
  • 60 g uncooked mixed lentils
  • ½ vegetable stock cube
  • 40 g white onion, chopped
  • 40 g thai red curry paste
  • 200 g full fat coconut milk (½ a can)
  • 200 g chopped tomatoes
  • 150 g young spinach
  • 1 naan bread to serve


  1. First, pre-heat the oven to gas mark 4/350F/180C and line a roasting tray with foil or parchment.
  2. Cut the butternut squash into bite-size chunks, then line up on the tray and spray with a little cooking spray. Roast for 30-40 minutes until tender, stirring halfway.
  3. Meanwhile, rinse the lentils before adding to a pot along with the stock cube and covering with cold water. Bring to the boil, then allow to simmer for 12 minutes.
  4. Heat some cooking spray on a non-stick pan and add the onions. Fry until soft, then add the curry paste, tomatoes and coconut milk. Stir every so often as the sauce thickens (about 10 minutes). Meanwhile, heat up the naan bread in the oven.
  5. Finally, add the squash, lentils and spinach to the curry and season to taste. Cook for another couple of minutes, then serve with the naan bread.

Notes: I adapted this (with little change) from a BBC recipe to cook for my mum on our vegan nights because we both LOVE curry and this was a hit!

  • what he says: im fine
  • what he means: listen ok i understand that during gon's date with palm it confirms that he's still 12 but there's no way that's possible ok hes 13 AT LEAST at that point. during the greed island arch killua goes to get his hunter license and it confirms that that year's hunter exam took place at the very beginning of the year right after new years, which means last year's hunter exam took place in january too, assuming that they take place during the same time every year. gon's birthday is in may, and killua's is in july--they were both 12 when they took the exam the first time, so there's no way they didnt pass both of their birthdays over the course of the series. theres literally no way they werent 13 during the end of the greed island arch. the whole span of the chimera ant arch takes place over the course of at least 3 months, quite possibly more, meaning gon would've been almost 14 during his fight with pitou. why do they keep saying hes 12? why have they not celebrated their birthdays? why are these boys never aging?

  • If you have stuff to do wake up early in the morning and get your shit done before 11 am
  • After eating take a nap! Siestas were invented to avoid the extreme heat that happens between 12 pm to 4pm 
  • Like really, avoid being in the streets from 12pm to 4pm
  • Start being productive again when it’s 5pm (again if you have taken a nap you will be more productive at night)

I know most of you have diferent schedules, like for example you shops close way earlier than ours but if you can try to stick to that scedule as much as possible.

Also three random tips:

  • Keep old people and little kids at home, even if you don’t have AC, the sun and the heats could be fatal to them. Don’t let them out  until the evening or in the early morning. If you live around your grandparents be nice and if they need to shop anything buy it for them, they could end up in the hospital because they had to buy bread.
  • Look for spanish summer recepies, like gazpacho, they are recepies done to face extreme heat.
  • Keep you mobiles, tablets, other electrical deviced away from the sun, they can start melting itselves from the heat!
iKON has successfully rounded off their Japan arena tour that fascinated 146,000 fans…

[동아닷컴=장경국 기자] iKON has successfully rounded off their arena concert tour in Japan.

On March 15 at Osaka-jo Hall, iKON held the last concert of their first Japan arena concert tour “iKONCERT 2016 SHOWTIME TOUR IN JAPAN” which has drawn 146,000 fans to 14 concerts in five cities.

On the day, Osaka-jo Hall was filled with the heat and passion of 12,000 fans. The concert began with explosive acclamation by fans. The atmosphere got heated more and more with the performances of “DUMB&DUMBER”, “RHYTHM TA”, and “SINOSIJAK”.

B.I and BOBBY boasted their outstanding rapping in hip-hop performances, while also showing off their appeal as vocalists in the performances of tender ballad songs such as “APOLOGY”, “Wait for me”, and “AIRPLANE”.

iKON also presented special Japanese versions of “DUMB&DUMBER”, “WHAT’S WRONG?”, “Wait for me”, “I MISS YOU SO BAD”, and “ANTHEM”, to further electrify Japanese fans.

At the concert held in Osaka, fans had a surprise event for iKON members. Fans filled the audience seat with white light and the word “iKON” in red color was projected on the opposite side of the stage. Plus, fans sang a happy birthday song with the other members for BOBBY’s mother who was present at the concert, to make BOBBY shed tears of joy.

Fans’ enthusiastic support deeply moved iKON members. iKON shed tears when they sang “Climax”, the last song of the concert, and said, “It was a really happy tour concert, so we don’t want to finish it. This tour will be left in our memories for a very long time. We’ll do our best to keep growing as an artist, so please always be with us”.

After such success of their first Japan arena tour, iKON will now release “WELCOME BACK”’s full album in the country on the 30 this month. The album will include Japanese versions of “ANTHEM(remix)”, “DUMB&DUMBER”, “WHAT’S WRONG?”, “I MISS YOU SO BAD”, and “RHYTHM TA”. iKON made an eye-catching debut in Japan when their debut album took No.1 on Oricon’s daily chart upon its release on January 13. That is why many music fans are paying keen attention to what kind of record iKON will newly set with their new album.
