Sally Thompson

There's more where this came from!


  1. 1 white onion, diced
  2. 8 chestnut mushrooms, chopped
  3. 1 large handful of cashews
  4. 200g vegan chicken style pieces
  5. ½ sweet red pepper
  6. Handful of sliced spinach
  7. 250g korma curry paste (check ingredients to ensure there is no dairy)
  8. ½ carton non-dairy single cream
  9. Water
  10. Pinch of chilli (optional)
  11. Drizzle of agave syrup (optional)
  12. Sprinkle of desiccated coconut (optional)
  13. Salt & Pepper to taste (optional)

A compassionate take on the creamy classic, but better!
