Cauliflower, Chickpea & Spinach Curry

This is a very quick, simple curry which is delicious on its own or served with some steamed rice. It’s suitable for freezing and can also be roughly blended with a little more liquid to make a curried vegetable soup. Or I sometimes put some onto a warmed wrap and roll up for a lunch time sarnie. And don’t bin the green leaves surrounding the cauliflower – wash and steam for a tasty veg which is a cross between cauliflower and cabbage.

Serves 4

  • 1 cauliflower, separated into small florets
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp nigella (black onion) seeds 
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 green chillies, finely chopped
  • 1 piece fresh ginger, grated
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp ground fenugreek
  • pinch of ground cinnamon
  • 150ml hot vegetable stock or water
  • 12 tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 1 can chickpeas (about 240g drained weight)
  • 250g spinach leaves, well washed
  • squeeze of lemon juice
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  1. Bring a saucepan of water to the boil and add salt. Add the cauliflower florets and blanch for about 3 minutes until just al dente. Drain and refresh under cold water.
  2. Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Add the cumin and nigella seeds, and fry for a minute, then add the onion, chillies and ginger. Cook for a few minutes until the onion has softened, then add the garlic and all the spices. Pour in the     stock, add the tomatoes and season with salt and pepper. Simmer for 5 minutes, then add the cauliflower florets, chickpeas and spinach leaves. Don’t worry about the spinach leaves crowding the saucepan, they will wilt down in no time.
  3. When the spinach has wilted, taste for seasoning. Add more salt and pepper if necessary and then add a squeeze of lemon juice.
  4. Serve with coriander sprinkled over and yogurt on the side.

Heading

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
