Packed with pleasingly warm heat and heady with perfumed spice – it’s our vegan butternut and chickpea korma with a brown and wild rice pilau. Because with Cape Herb & Spice in your pantry meatless Monday is anything but boring!

- WHAT YOU WILL NEED -

  • FOR THE KORMA
  • 1 cup onion, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 3 plump cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 Tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • FOR THE PILAU
  • 3 Tbsp Cape Herb & Spice KORMA
  • 1 cup brown and wild rice mix
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 2 Cape Herb & Spice TRUE CINNAMON QUILLS
  • 1 cup diced fresh tomato
  • 5 Cape Herb & Spice GREEN CARDAMOM PODS
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • ¾ tsp Salt
  • 1 red chilli, finely sliced
  • 2 cups water
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup golden sultanas
  • large butternut (600g), cut into cubes
  • ½ cup almonds, toasted in a dry saucepan and roughly chopped
  • 2x 400g tins chickpeas, drained

- METHOD -

To make the korma: Fry the onions over medium heat in vegetable oil until soft. Add the ginger and garlic and fry for a further minute. Add the Cape Herb & Spice Korma Spice and fry for a further minute. Add the coconut milk, tomato, salt, chilli, water and butternut. Cover with a lid and simmer over low heat until the butternut is soft, then add the chickpeas and warm through.

To make the pilau: Place the rice, water, salt, cinnamon and cardamom in a deep saucepan. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer over low heat for 30-40 minutes until rice is cooked. Once cooked, remove the spices and stir in the sultanas and almonds.

Serve this korma and pilau with a dollop of low fat plain yoghurt and coriander leaves.
