  • 250g Tilda Wholegrain Brown Basmati Rice
  • 1 Butternut Squash
  • 1 Onion
  • 2 Cloves of Garlic
  • 2cm Knob of Ginger

  1. Peel and chop your butternut squash into 3cm chunks. Dice your onion, then finely chop your garlic, ginger and scotch bonnet.

  2. Heat a little vegetable oil in a large casserole dish. Add your onions and cook it for 10 mins until soft and starting to brown. Add your garlic, ginger, scotch bonnet chilli, thyme leaves and curry powder and cook for 2 mins longer.

  3. Drain your chickpeas. Tip them into the pan along with the butternut squash, vegetable stock and coconut milk. Bring to a boil, then turn down the heat and gently simmer for 25 mins. Your butternut squash should be tender by this time.
