Winter Glow – Butter Bean and Butternut Curry

This hearty curry will see you through the coldest of winter days. Bursting with flavour and packed with nutrients, I like to make extra – it tastes even better for lunch the next day! This recipe uses butternut and butter beans but feel free to substitute as you wish. Tofu, egg plant, and chickpeas are all great options.

INGREDIENTS

1 tsp coconut oil
1/2 white onion
1 clove garlic, grated
1/2 lemongrass stalk, bashed with a rolling pin
120ml water
400ml coconut milk
200g butternut, cut into 2cm cubes
250g butterbeans
20g coriander leaves
FOR THE CURRY PASTE:
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp fennel seeds
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp paprika
5cm piece root ginger
2 Tbsp brown rice vinegar
2 Tbsp sesame oil
1/4 tsp Himalayan pink salt
Finely grated zest and juice of 1 lime


METHOD:
1. Put all the curry paste ingredients into a food processor or blender and whizz until you get a chunky paste. Set aside. – Melt the coconut oil in a pan and sauté the onion and garlic for 1 minute. Tip in the curry paste along with the whole lemongrass stalk.
2. Leave the sauce to bubble for a further 2 minutes, then add another 4 tablespoons of the water. – After another 2 minutes, add the coconut milk and butternut and continue to cook on medium heat for 5 minutes. – Finally, stir in the butterbeans and half the coriander leaves, and leave to simmer for a further 7 minutes. – Test to see if the butternut is cooked, if not, simmer for another few minutes until totally tender. – Remove the lemongrass stalk before serving and sprinkle the curry with the rest of
the coriander.
