Thai Massaman Curry
Print Recipe
This Massaman curry is made with coconut milk as is tradition, with peanut butter to add to the creaminess. It's so moreish it's difficult not to serve yourself a meal for 2 for 1! There's nothing complicated about this recipe; most if it is just combining everything together in a pot. I've used sweet potato, aubergine, green beans from the garden and button mushrooms, but the choice of veg is up to you! Broccoli goes very well with this recipe if you want to sub the green beans.

  1. Cook the macaroni as per the package instructions in a medium-large saucepan—usually 10-12 minutes for slightly underdone (al dente), because you'll be heating it further with the cheese in a minute!
  2. combine the soaked and drained cashews, almond milk, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, garlic, smoked paprika, turmeric & salt and pepper in a high speed blender until thick and creamy.
  3. Drain the pasta and add with the sauce back into the pot. Stir well and heat for another 2-3 minutes.
  4. Serve with vegan crispy bacon bits or fried panko breadcrumbs and a few spring onion slices. Amazing!

Buffalo anything is my favourite, and it must always only be made with Frank's Original. These crispy fried cauliflower pieces are amazing with some garlic dip, and easy to make!

Instructions
Batter
  1. Add the flour, nutritional yeast, salt, pepper, smoked paprika, garlic powder and oregano to a bowl and mix well with a whisk. Slowly mix in the water until smooth.
Buffalo Sauce
  1. In a glass jug empty the bottle of Frank's and add 2 Tbsp of dairy-free spread. Heat in the microwave for about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Garlic Dip
  1. Mix 2 Tbsp of vegan mayo with the chopped garlic, parsley, cider vinegar and salt & pepper and mix well.
Cauliflower
  1. Heat about 200ml oil in a deep pan.
  2. Cut the cauliflower into florets. I cut mine into about 12 pieces this time, getting rid of the thick trunk bit. Cut smaller for bite-sized pieces.
  3. Dip the cauliflower into the batter and gently place in the hot oil for 2-3 minutes, turning every minute until golden and crispy.
  4. In a large bowl, pour the Frank's over the hot cauliflower pieces and mix it up well. Remove them from the bowl so they stay crispy. Serve on gem lettuce leaves with celery sticks and garlic dip.

Instructions
  1. Add all the ingredients to the high-speed food processor you use to make smoothies and blend into a coarse paste.
  2. Spread onto one side of vegan-buttered bread. I used cucumber for the other side, but is just as nice with lettuce (or both!).
