Cauliflower, bean and coconut casserole (Serves 4)

The cute trick with this black-eyed bean and coconut dish is that it can be prepped in minutes then just popped in the oven when needed; the magic happens in the pot without any more effort required

1 tbsp oil
200g diced onion
2 carrots, sliced
1 red chilli, finely chopped
1 vegetable stock cube
400ml can coconut milk
1 cauliflower, cut into florets (about 700g)
400g can black eyed beans, drained and rinsed
28g fresh coriander

Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the onion, carrots and chilli for 3-4 minutes. Dissolve the stock cube in 150ml boiling water and add to the pan with the coconut milk. Bring to the boil.
Place the cauliflower florets and beans in a large casserole dish and pour over the coconut mixture. Cover.
When ready to cook, place, still covered, in an oven heated to 200C/gas mark 6 and bake for 45 minutes until tender, stirring once halfway through.
Reserve a little coriander for garnish and chop the rest. When the casserole is ready, stir in the chopped coriander and serve garnished with the reserved leaves. Great with jasmine rice.
