¼ tsp, ground, (1 x pinch)

Butternut pumpkin

1000 g, (1kg or 1 whole), peeled, cut into 2cm cubes

Canned diced tomatoes

2 400g can, (2 x 400g cans)

Vegetable stock cube

½ individual, crumbled

Canned chickpeas, rinsed and drained

1 400g can, (1 x 400g can)

  1. Cook carrots in a saucepan of boiling water for 5 minutes, then drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, lightly spray a large, flameproof casserole dish with oil and heat over medium heat. Cook onion for 5 minutes. Add ginger and garlic and cook for 2-3 minutes, then stir in spices and cook for 1-2 minutes, adding a splash of water to the pan if it starts to stick.
  3. Add carrots and pumpkin and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, stock cube and 1 cup (250ml) water and bring to a simmer. Simmer, partially covered, for 40 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in chickpeas and kale and simmer a further 5 minutes or until kale is wilted.
  4. While stew is cooking, blitz cauliflower in a food processor until it resembles couscous. Lightly spray a large, non-stick frying pan with oil and heat over medium heat. Cook ‘couscous’ for 4-5 minutes, stirring, until tender. Remove from heat, stir in parsley and season to taste. Serve with stew.


TIP: Replace kale with baby spinach leaves, if preferred
