Ingredients List


Serves 4
  • 4 large baking potatoes
  • 1 onion , finely sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves , finely sliced
  • 1 tbsp mild curry powder , or to taste
  • 400 g cannellini beans , rinsed and drained
  • 500 g tomato passata
  • 200 g frozen spinach
  • sea salt / black pepper

  1. Heat oven to 220 C / 425 F / 200 C Fan.  Scrub the potatoes, prick with a fork and bake for 60 minutes or until tender and the skins are crisp.
  2. Meanwhile, sauté the onion and garlic with a little stock or water in a heavy bottomed pan, over a medium heat until softened, stirring often to stop them sticking.  Approx. 10 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle in the curry powder and cook for one more minute.
  4. Add the beans and passata and simmer for 10 minutes.  Add the spinach and cook until thawed.  Season.
  5. To make the kachumber, combine all the ingredients in a bowl.
  6. Once the potatoes are cooked, serve topped with the beans, yoghurt and chutney, with the salad on the side.


The curried beans can be batched cooked and frozen for up to 3 months.  Defrost overnight in the fridge and reheat in a pan or the microwave.
