SOMETHING FOR NOTHING : Vegetable Curry and 'Rice'

This is a wonderful, filling, comforting bowl of food but it is ZERO propoints!


You will need:(for 4 portions)


1 onion

2 cloves garlic

2 tablespoons mild curry powder

1 teaspoon black onion seeds

1 aubergine

1 red pepper

1 green pepper

8 mushrooms

1 small punnet cherry tomatoes

1 mango

1 banana

500g passata

1 tablespoon low salt soy sauce

25g bunch fresh coriander

1/2 cup water

Frylight Sunflower oil


1 small cauliflower


Fry the onion, garlic and curry powder in some Frylight Sunflower oil until soft.

Add a little water if the mixture

becomes too dry.

Chop up the aubergine, peppers and the mango, leaving them chunky. I like the mushrooms and the tomatoes whole. Add to the pan.

Add a tablespoon of low salt soy sauce, the black onion seeds, the chopped banana

and the passata.

Allow to simmer and bubble for about 20-30 minutes until everything is cooked but still has a good 'bite'. Add more water if necessary to make the consistency of sauce you prefer.


While the curry is cooking, grate the cauliflower into a bowl.


Just before serving, either microwave or steam the cauliflower for approx. 1 minute-just to warm through and take the raw 'bite' away. You could flavour the cauliflower 'rice' with a little lemon zest, dried mint, cinnamon or spice of your choice. I quite like it plain so it acts as a bland 'carrier' for the delicious curry.
