Squash tikka masala
29th Apr, 2019

Ingredients

  • PASTE (makes 10 portions):
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp chilli powder
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground cardamom
  • 3 tsp ground ginger
  • 4 tsp ground coriander
  • 4 tsp turmeric
  • 3 tsp garam masala
  • 150ml cold-pressed rapeseed oil
  • 100ml water
  • ½ small white onion
  • 1 tbsp cold-pressed rapeseed oil
  • 180ml coconut milk
  • Pinch salt
  • 280g chopped tomatoes
  • 200g butternut squash, cut into approx. 4cm chunks
  • 200g yellow pepper, cut into slices
  • 130g cauliflower, cut into small florets
  • Small handful of coriander, roughly chopped

Equipment required:

  • Food processor

Serves 2.

  1. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees.
  2. Make your curry paste by blitzing all the ingredients into a paste with a food processor. This will make enough for 10 portions, so you can keep the leftover in the fridge for up to two weeks to enjoy at a later date.
  3. Prep all your veg, then roast the squash in the oven for 15 minutes, adding the cauliflower and peppers for the final 8 minutes. Set aside when ready.
  4. Meanwhile, start making your sauce. Chop the onions and slowly pan fry with oil and 1 tbsp of your curry paste until the onions have softened.
  5. Add the coconut milk and salt and simmer for 10 minutes.
  6. Add the chopped tomatoes and simmer for a further 10 minutes.
  7. Stir through your roasted veg until well combined and warm throughout.
  8. Top with coriander and serve with your choice of accompaniment (we like quinoa).

Imagine a pudding that is refreshing, smooth, crunchy and totally indulgent, and on top of that is actually healthy. Well you’ve just found it. Say hello to our delicious Frozen yoghurt cake.

Sweet potato and coconut dal

Dal is one of my go-to dishes; as long as you have the essential ingredient, red lentils, then you can pretty much make it from any leftover veg. This version uses sweet potato but it would be just as good with most left-over root vegetables. The creamy coconut adds a touch of richness and is perfectly balanced with aromatic cardamom.

Stuffed Courgette Flowers

Courgette flowers often appear on menus and in recipes as deep fried and stuffed with lots of cheese. I decided to try a more nutritious way to enjoy these beautiful, vibrant and delicate flowers.
