Spicy vegetarian recipe from Estelle’s Gower Goodies

Estelle's wonderful sauces including Mavis Revenge and Gower Reaper can be bought at Uplands and Marina Markets.






½ tsp green cardamom powder

1 tsp nigella seeds

2 tbsps coconut oil

1 tsp masala powder

2 tsps curry powder

½ red onion quartered

¼ block coconut milk

200ml coconut milk

6 tbsps “Mavis Revenge Sauce”

½ tsp fresh diced ginger

1 can plum tomatoes

10 whole cherry tomatoes

1 ½ whole roasted pepper

290g approx. tin of hot and spicy mixed beans

50g jaggery

½ big white cauliflower (white florets only, no green leaves)

If you love hot, you can add 4 tbsps “Gower Reaper”

Salt and pepper



Set oven for 160c

Steam white cauliflower florets until soft but not mushy.

In a warm pan add coconut oil, onions, spices, ginger, pepper (cut into chunks) and jaggery – fry slowly for 5-10 minutes.

This will help bring out the flavours of the spices.

Cook until onions are soft – if dry add a little water.

When all combined, add tomatoes, coconut block, coconut milk, mixed beans, cauliflower and “Mavis’s Revenge”

Stir all ingredients well in a large casserole dish and cook slowly for about 45 mins – 1 hour in oven, stirring now and then.

Season with salt and pepper.

If not spicy enough add more “Mavis” or “Gower Reaper”!

Serve with brown rice.
