  1. Parboil the carrots for 5 minutes, then drain and set aside. Meanwhile, mist a large, flameproof casserole with cooking spray and cook the onions over a medium heat for 5 minutes. Add the ginger and garlic and cook for 2-3 minutes, then stir in all the spices and cook for 1-2 minutes, adding a splash of water to the pan if it starts to stick.
  2. Add the carrots and squash and cook for 2 minutes, then stir in the tomatoes and stock. Bring to a simmer then partially cover and cook for 40 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender. Stir in the chickpeas and kale and cook for a final 5 minutes.
  3. While the stew is cooking, blitz the cauliflower in a food processor until it resembles couscous. Mist a large nonstick frying pan with cooking spray and fry the ‘couscous’ for 4-5 minutes, stirring, until tender. Remove from the heat, stir in the parsley and season to taste. Serve with the stew.
