  • Add a generous amount of olive oil, and cook the tempeh for 6-8 minutes, stirring a few times.

  • Peel the garlic and ginger.
  • For the lemongrass, slice off the very bottom of the stalk, peel off any dried out layers to expose the aromatic inside.
  • Whizz up all the paste ingredients together, you may need to add a splash of water to get a smooth paste.
  • Put to one side.

For the veggies

  • Thinly slice the peppers, then peel the carrots and cut into rounds.

For the curry

  • In your K!T pan, heat a couple of tablespoons of veg oil on medium to high heat.
