2 clove(s), crushed

Fresh ginger

2 tsp, finely grated

Curry powder

1 tbs, mild

Ground turmeric

1 tsp


1 tbs

Unsweetened almond milk

Vegetable stock

150 ml


2 medium


350 g

  1. Lightly spray a large non-stick frying pan with oil and heat over medium heat. Cook 1 chopped brown onion,
  2. stirring, for 3-4 minutes, until soft. Add 2 crushed garlic cloves, 2 teaspoons finely grated fresh ginger,
  3. 1 tablespoon mild curry powder and 1 teaspoon ground turmeric and cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until
  4. fragrant. Mix 1 tablespoon cornflour and ½ cup (125ml) unsweetened almond milk to a smooth paste in a

  6. stock. Cut 2 carrots into 1cm-thick batons and 350g cauliflower into florets. Add to pan and cook, stirring,
  7. until mixture comes to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes. Stir in 200g green beans.
  8. Simmer, covered, for a further 2 minutes. Meanwhile, stir 2 tablespoons flaked almonds and 1 tablespoon
  9. desiccated coconut in a small frying pan over a medium-low heat until light golden. Remove curry from heat.
  10. Stir in ¼ cup (60g) plain unsweetened soy yoghurt and season with salt and pepper. Scatter over toasted
  11. almonds and coconut and serve with lime wedges.


TIP: Curry, without soy yoghurt added, can be frozen in a container for up to 1 month. Thaw overnight in the fridge. Reheat in a large saucepan over medium heat until hot, then stir in yoghurt. Serve with brown rice, cauliflower ‘rice’ or mini naan breads.
