Why not pass a bowl of Mild Pea and Sweet Potato Curry
2 tbsp vegetable oil
500g sweet potato, peeled and cut into large dice
1 red onion, finely chopped
2 cm piece root ginger, peeled and finely chopped
1 tsp ground cumin
2 tbsp mild Korma curry paste
1 tin chopped tomatoes
200ml chicken stock
sea salt and black pepper
300g frozen peas
Juice 1/2 lemon
Handful coriander, roughly chopped
Heat the oil in a large casserole or deep frying pan. Add the sweet potato and red onion and fry for 5 – 10 minutes, until the vegetables are starting to colour. Add the garlic and ginger and cook for a further minute. Add the ground cumin and curry paste and cook, stirring constantly, for another minute. Add the tinned tomatoes and blend in the stock. Season with sea salt and black pepper and bring to the boil.
Simmer gently for 20 minutes, stirring regularly and topping up with extra stock if necessary, until the sweet potato has softened and is cooked through. Stir in the frozen peas and cook for a further 3 minutes. Adjust the seasoning and add the lemon juice. Stir through the chopped coriander and serve with steamed basmati rice, warm naan bread, yoghurt and chutney.

1/8 teaspoon Vanilla
RHUBARB FOOL RECIPE
- Chop the rhubarb and place in a saucepan with 1tbsp water and the sugar.
- Turn on the heat and stir. (keep stirring it for now to prevent the sugar sticking to the pan. Mixture will moisten as the juice is released from the rhubarb.
- Boil until the rhubarb is soft. Approx 10 minutes
- Whip the double cream with the vanilla until it forms soft peaks. When this stage is reached pour in the rhubarb and fold in until loosely combined. Don’t worry about getting it fully mixed in, it looks much better when it’s not.
- Empty into wine glasses and allow to chill for an hour or more before serving.
