  • 800ml hot vegetable stock
  • 2 tbsp curry powder

1. Preheat your oven to 220°C/Fan 200°C/Gas 7. Put the cauliflower, sweet potatoes and onion in a large non-stick roasting tin. Spray with low calorie cooking spray, season and bake for 15 minutes until starting to brown.

2.  Meanwhile, stir together the stock, curry powder, chillies, saffron, cumin and mustard seeds, cinnamon stick, cardamom pods and cloves. Mix the rice and green beans into the baked vegetables, then pour over the stock mixture. Reduce the oven to 190°C/Fan 170°C/Gas 5. Cover tightly with foil and bake for 30 minutes, or until the rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed. Discard the cinnamon stick.
