Before you start

Preheat oven to 180°C | Parchment lined baking tray | Wide heavy based saucepan | Kettle

First, prepare the veggies

  • Peel and finely chop the onion
  • Peel and grate the ginger and garlic
  • Drain and rinse the chickpeas
  • Wash the spinach
  • Peel the squash cut it in half, scoop out all of the seeds and cut it into 2cm chunks
  • Peel the carrots and parsnips and chop into even size 2cm chunks
  • Add the vegetables to a bowl and toss with olive oil, ½ tsp of cayenne powder and a pinch of salt
  • Place on a lined baking tray and roast for 30 minutes until tender

Whilst the vegetables are roasting, make the rice

  • Pour your rice in a colander and rinse thoroughly
  • Pour the washed rice into a saucepan, pour over the water, put the lid on the pan, put the pan on the stove over a medium heat and bring the water to a rolling boil
  • Turn the heat right down and simmer for 25 minutes
  • Take the lid off, fluff the rice with a fork, take the pan off the heat, put the lid back on the pan and set to one side until ready to serve

Then, start on the sauce

  • Put the cashews in a small bowl with the warm water and leave to soak.
  • Heat the vegetable oil in a wide, heavy-based pan over a medium-high heat
  • Add the onions and a pinch of salt and stir for 4-5 minutes
  • Add the cinnamon, cardamom pods, nutmeg, turmeric, remaining cayenne pepper, ginger and garlic to the pan and and stir for 2-3 minutes
  • Turn the heat right down

Then, make the cashew cream

  • Put the cashews and warm water into a blender and blitz into a smooth cream
  • Pour the cashew cream into the pan and stir it into the onions
  • Add the coconut yogurt to the pan and stir it in to form a creamy sauce
  • Taste sauce and season with salt
  • Add the chickpeas and roast vegetables to the pan and fold into the sauce (add some water here if the curry is too dry)
  • Add the spinach to the pan and fold it into the curry

Serve and enjoy!

  • Plate up half the rice, spoon half the curry over the rice and serve immediately
  • Transfer the remaining curry and rice to a Tupperware and eat the following day for lunch
