Ingredients

  • 2 tsp vegetable bouillon powder
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and sliced
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped ginger
  • 3 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 200g butternut squash (peeled weight), cut into chunks
  • 1 red pepper, deseeded and sliced
  • 1 small aubergine (about 250g), halved and thickly sliced
  • 15g coriander, chopped
  • 160g frozen peas, defrosted
  • 1 lime, zested and juiced, to taste

Tip

Add sweet potatoes

You can swap the squash for sweet potatoes if you prefer as they will still count towards one of your five-a-day unlike white potatoes.

Method

  1. Put all the ingredients except the coriander, peas and lime juice into the slow cooker pot and stir well. Cover with the lid and chill overnight.

  2. The next day, cook on Low for 6 hrs until the vegetables are really tender, then stir in the coriander and peas. The heat of the curry should be enough to warm them through. Taste and add a good squeeze of lime juice if you fancy extra zing. Serve with a wholemeal flatbread.
