Before you start

Preheat oven to 180°C | 2 baking trays lined with parchment paper | Hand blender or Food processor

First, roast your vegetables

  • Peel the sweet potatoes and cut into 3cm cubes, spread the cubes out on a baking tray, drizzle over a little rapeseed oil, sprinkle over a little salt and pepper
  • Put the baking sheet in the oven and roast the potatoes for 25-30 minutes
  • Break the cauliflower into small florets, spread over a baking tray, drizzle over a little rapeseed oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper and sprinkle over the cumin seeds
  • Put the baking sheet in the oven and bake for 20 minutes until the florets begin to char

Next, peel and chop

  • Whilst the potatoes and cauliflower florets are roasting, peel and finely chop the onions
  • Peel and grate the garlic and ginger
  • Remove the coriander leaves from the stalks and and finely slice the stalks
  • Dice the tomatoes and roughly chop the spinach

Add the herbs and spices

  • Warm 2 tbsp rapeseed oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat, add the onions, a pinch of salt and stir for 4-5 minutes to soften
  • Add the coriander stalks, garlic, ginger and cumin seeds to the pan and stir for 1 minute to release the aromas
  • Add the paprika, cayenne, cumin, turmeric and chilli flakes to the pan and stir them into the onions
  • Add the tomato puree and stir for 30 seconds
  • Pour the chopped tomatoes into the pan and stir for 2 minutes until well mixed and soft

Bring everything together

  • Pour the vegetable stock into the pan, turn the heat up and bring to a simmer
  • Add the roasted sweet potato and blend until smooth either with a hand blender or in a food processor
  • Pour the liquid back into the pan and bring to a very gentle simmer over a low heat
  • Add the lentils, spinach and ¾’s of the coriander to the pan and stir until completely warmed through
  • Pour the coconut cream into the pan and stir it through
  • Add the roast cauliflower to the pan, squeeze in the lemon juice, catching any pips in your other hand and fold everything together

Season, serve and enjoy!
