Serves 4
Total Time
50 Minutes
3 tbsp of olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
2 carrots, cut into 1cm pieces
3 garlic cloves, crushed
3cm piece of fresh ginger, peeled and grated
1 tbsp of mild curry powder
1 tsp of garam masala
½ tsp of ground turmeric
1 tbsp of white spelt flour
400ml of vegetable stock
2 tbsp of soy sauce
350g of Tenderstem® broccoli
100g of fresh breadcrumbs
3 spring onions, finely chopped
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Brown rice, to serve
Step 1

Put half the oil into a pan and place over a medium heat. Add the onion, carrots, garlic and ginger and cook gently for 8 minutes, stirring frequently, until the onions are translucent, taking care not to let anything burn.

Step 2

Add the curry powder, garam masala, turmeric and flour and stir-fry for another 2 minutes until fragrant. Gradually stir in the stock and soy sauce and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until thickened and the carrots are cooked through.

Step 3

Using a handheld or upright blender, blitz the sauce until completely smooth, adding in a little water if it's too thick. Season well, to taste.

Step 4

Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/400°F/gas mark 6. Line a baking sheet with foil or baking parchment.

Step 5

Toss the broccoli in the remaining oil, to coat, and season well. Roll in the breadcrumbs until evenly coated, transfer to the lined baking tray and roast for 10-15 minutes until golden and the broccoli is cooked through.

Step 6

Divide the sauce between your plates and top with the katsu broccoli. Scatter the spring onions on top and serve with rice.
