Three veg curry with pea mash

A simple and tasty meal absolutely packed with veg that can be whipped up in no time.

Niki Webster has swapped out the traditional base of rice for a vibrant green pea mash – and she says to trust her, it works. The mash provides a creamy contrast to the warm spiced veg curry and adds plant-based protein and nutrients. A most rejuvenating meal.

Serves 2

Prep 10 minutes

Cook 30 minutes

For the curry

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large red onion, finely diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1½ tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp black mustard seeds
  • 300g cherry tomatoes, chopped
  • 100ml water
  • 1 red or orange pepper, cubed
  • 1 small courgette, cubed
  • 1 small aubergine, cubed
  • Chilli flakes, to taste
  • Sea salt and black pepper

For the pea mash

  • 450g frozen peas, defrosted by running under a hot tap in a sieve
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

To serve

  • 2 tbsp coconut or plant-based yoghurt
  • Handful of chopped coriander and mint

To make the curry, add the oil to a large frying pan on a medium heat. Add the onion and fry for 8 –10 minutes until soft and browning, then add the garlic and spices and stir for a further few minutes.

Add the chopped tomatoes, water and vegetables, cover and simmer for 10 –15 minutes until the vegetables are tender. Season well. To make the pea mash, add all the ingredients to a food processor and blitz to a chunky mash.

Top the pea mash with the veggie curry, creamy yoghurt and herbs to serve.
