Heat a large pot over medium heat. Add oil, onion, and garlic. Sauté for 2 minutes, stirring frequently.

Add butternut squash and season with salt, pepper, curry powder, and ground cinnamon. Stir to coat. Then cover and cook for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add coconut milk, vegetable broth, maple syrup or coconut sugar, and chili garlic paste (optional – for heat). Bring to a low boil over medium heat and then reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes or until butternut squash is fork tender.
