4 people



1 White Onion
3 Cloves Garlic
1 Thumb Size Piece Ginger
1 Small Aubergine
1 Courgette
Pinch Cayenne Pepper
1 tsp Turmeric
1 tsp Cumin
1 tsp Coriander
2 tbsp Curry Powder
250g of Mr Organic Ancient Grain Mix
1 can Coconut Milk
2 cups Vegetable Stock
Salt & Pepper
1 Cauliflower
Coconut Yoghurt


1. First heat the oil in a large pan, then chop up the onion. Add the onion to the pan and cook that off until soft. Mince the garlic, add that to the pan too and cook it down, then grate in the fresh ginger.

2. Chop up the aubergine into small cubes, add that in next and allow it to cook down for around 3 minutes. Meanwhile, chop the courgette into small cubes and add that to the pan followed by the cayenne pepper, cumin, coriander, turmeric and the curry powder.

3. Give it a good mix and again, leave it to fry off for a few more minutes before then adding in the tomato puree.

4. Rinse the Mr Organic Pearl & Spelt Barley, Split Red Lentil and Mung Bean Ancient Grain Mix under running water, drain then add that to the pan, turn it through everything and then add the chopped tomatoes, coconut milk, vegetable stock and season it well with salt and black pepper.

5. Bring that up to a boil, then turn the heat back down and leave it to simmer on a gentle heat for around 35 minutes.

6. Meanwhile, make the cauliflower rice by trimming and quartering the head of the cauliflower, then put that on to steam for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, transfer it over to a food processor and then pulse it until it breaks up.

7. When the curried stew is done and the majority of the liquid has cooked down, serve it with the cauliflower rice, coconut yoghurt, fresh chopped chilli and coriander.
