High-Protein Cauliflower, Paneer & Pea Curry Recipe
World Vegetarian Day is on 1st October, so this month's recipe is all about the health boosting power of plants! We love this Cauliflower, Paneer & Pea Curry recipe, which is super tasty, low in fat and easy to make.
To add even more protein, you could add in some meat-free chicken style pieces, and/or add in two handfuls of spinach to be like Popeye and increase those vitamins!
- 2 tbsp sunflower oil
- 225g paneer, cut into cubes
- 150g meat-free chicken style pieces (optional)
- 1 head of cauliflower, cut into small florets
- 2 onions, thickly sliced
- 2 garlic cloves, crushed
- 2 heaped tbsp tikka masala paste
- 500g passata
- 200g frozen peas
- 2 handfuls spinach (optional)
- basmati rice to serve
In a large non-stick frying pan heat 1 tbsp oil and then fry the paneer until crisp. Remove the crispy paneer and set aside.
Add 1 tbsp oil to the pan and cook the cauliflower until browned. Next, add the onions and the meat-free chicken style pieces (if using) with a little more oil if needed, and cook for a further 5 mins until the onions have softened and the meat-free chicken style pieces have browned slightly.
Mix in the curry paste and garlic, then pour in the passata along with 250ml water, and season. Bring to a simmer, then cover the pan and cook for 18 to 20 mins or until the cauliflower is tender.
Finally mix in the frozen peas, crispy paneer, and spinach (if using) to the pan and cook for a further 5 mins. Serve with some basmati rice for a delicious and healthy meal!
