Saute onion in coconut oil for ~3 min., then add garlic and cook for another minute.  Add curry powder, sea salt, tomatoes, and chickpeas and heat on med.-low heat.  When butternut squash is done, peel it and add it to the chickpeas and tomatoes mix.  Can add chicken broth to thin out.  Serve over rice cooked in chicken broth.
