This curry is made with tempeh so that it provides good levels of protein. The cauliflower rice is also nutritious and low in carbohydrates. Cauliflower is a cruciferous vegetable and therefore aids in detoxification and balancing hormones.
Place into a food processor the chilli, tomato purée, ginger, garlic and 1 - 2 tbsp water. Blend to make a smooth paste. Set aside.
Place 1 tbsp oil into a frying pan on a medium heat. Add the tempeh and cook for 2 mins on each side until slightly brown. Set aside.
In the same pan add the aubergine, onion and red pepper with some extra oil and cook for 5-10mins until soft.
Then add the cardamom, cinnamon, bay leaf and whole peppercorns and stir for 1-2 minutes. Add the xylitol and stir.
Then add the ginger, chilli, garlic paste prepared earlier. Stir through. Add the coriander, cumin and garam masala and continue to mix for 1 minute. Season.
Add the tempeh and coconut milk and stir. Bring to the boil and then simmer for 5 minutes covered.
In a food processor, process the cauliflower florets until they are crumbly and about the same size as rice.
In a frying pan add the oil and fry the onion until soft. Add the cauliflower rice, turmeric and cumin and stir thoroughly until everything is combined. Cook on a low heat for 10 minutes until the cauliflower is cooked through.
Serve the cauliflower rice with the vegan Rogan Josh - scatter over some freshly cut coriander
This is a really quick and easy Soup to make. It is hearty and delicious. Celery has quite a unique taste but in soup it’s flavour becomes quite different. Often people who do not like raw celery really enjoy a hot bowl of celery soup. To provide some protein add a can of beans like butter beans or alternatively had 100g of red lentils to the soup whilst it is cooking. The protein in the beans or lentils will keep you full for longer.
