  1. Heat olive oil in a large pan over a medium heat. Add the onion along with a large pinch of salt and pepper. Cook gently until the onion has softened. Add ginger and garlic puree and stir well before adding in the spices and letting them cook for a couple of minutes
  2. Add the tomato, ground almonds, coconut cream and water and stir gently to combine
  3. Add in the vegetables and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat slightly and allow to bubble for 10-15 minutes until the vegetables are tender. Stir occasionally so it doesn’t stick. In the final 5 minutes stir in Elmlea Plant Double
