Sweet Potato and Chickpea Rogan
Description
A rich and tasty curry that doesn't have any hot spices, just pure flavour.

Providing all of your beta-carotene (vitamin A) and vitamin K for the day as well as over half of your fibre, iron, folate and magnesium, this is a nutrient-dense meal that is incredibly tasty.  It's also completely free of any added salt so it's brilliant for blood-pressure.

 
Ingredients
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • 3 sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed 
  • 3 handfuls spinach
  • 1 can or carton cooked chickpeas, drained
  • 350g passata
  • 2 tbsp tomato puree
  • 50g 'creamed' coconut block (don't use the clearer bit as it's pure oil)
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped or pressed
  • 2 cm fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 2 tsp garam masala
  • Quarter tsp turmeric
Directions
  1. Gently fry the red onion in a little water
  2. Add all of the other ingredients and bring to the bubble
  3. Reduce heat and simmer for about 45 minutes until the sweet potato is soft.  Stir regularly to prevent sticking and add small amounts of water if necessary
  4. Serve with quinoa

Cassoulet
The Southern-French classic Cassoulet gets a radical makeover in this recipe.  Loaded with flavour, it's a rich, hearty dish that is beautiful with some good bread.  Quick to prepare, it's a new family-favourite.

The original recipe is packed with meat and fat and is cooked slowly in a special pot.  This  version uses plant-based sausages.  Alternatively, for those wanting a whole-foods plant-based meal, omit the sausages and double up the beans.
