'I Need to Eat More Vegetables' Curry Recipe

You'd think that being vegan it would be easy to eat fruit and vegetables everyday. Well, it is, but sometimes nutrition does fall by the wayside and you realise with a shock that you have only eaten vegetables twice in the past week and you start checking your gums for signs of scurvy. Never fear, this curry will replenish your poor neglected body! Also, you don't have to wait until you're in the early stages of scurvy to make this, you could just, you know, make it because it's delicious.

Serves 4

2 tbsp coconut oil
2 tsp ground coriander
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp ginger
2 onions, sliced
2 carrots, sliced
3 potatoes, cut into 2cm chunks
A large handful of green beans, cut in half
400g tin kidney beans
3/4 cup peas
400g tin chopped tomatoes
500ml water
1tsp salt
2 large handfuls of baby spinach leaves

1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, heat the oil, then add coriander, cumin, turmeric, and ginger and fry for 30 seconds. Next add onion and fry for 3-5 minutes, until softened.

2. Add potato, carrot, and green beans, and fry for 5-10 minutes (I usually do it until the spices start to stick to the bottom of the pot).

3. Add kidney beans and peas, and stir to coat. Next add tomatoes, water, and salt. Bring to the boil.

5. Add spinach and stir to combine well. Reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Then cover and simmer for a further 30 minutes.

Serve with rice.

Happy eating! :)
