I'm pretty excited about this recipe.. Firstly because it contains so many of my favourite curry ingredients ie cauliflower (I always have gobi at Indian restaurants), sweet peas and spinach. This is one to the quickest and simplest curries to make, I find that making a paste speeds things up and really enhances the flavour. It's as simple as throwing all the ingredients into a blender and pulsing for a couple of minutes. In this one I added 4 big cups of organic spinach and a whole bunch of coriander including the stalks for tons of flavour.

I love the gorgeous green colour from the spinach and peas and you're getting some great nutrients from the iron in the spinach, protein rich peas and the high levels of vitamin C in cauliflower. Better still, it tastes delicious!

I would either eat this on its own or with some of my favourite buckwheat flatbreads.
