  • Boil the rice according to the instructions on the pack.
  • Chop the onion and chop or crush the garlic finely. Grate the ginger. Quarter the aubergine and then chop into pieces. Roughly chop the mushrooms.
  • Heat some oil in a large frying pan or sauté pan over a medium heat. Gently fry the onion, garlic and ginger until the onion is translucent.
  • In the meantime, heat some more oil in another large frying pan over a medium heat. Fry the mushrooms and the aubergine until brown. Give them plenty of time.
  • Add the curry spices to the onion, garlic and ginger and fry for 1-2 minutes. Add the chopped tomatoes. Fill the tin half-full of water and tip it into the pan. Add the diced squash, bring to the boil and turn the heat down low. Cover the pan with a lid and cook the diced pumpkin for 15-20 minutes until tender.
  • Heat the margarine in a small frying pan and fry the slivered almonds until brown and crunchy. Remove from the pan and drain on kitchen paper.
  • Add the spinach, a handful at a time, to the pan containing the squash. Allow the leaves to wilt before adding the next handful. Stir well.
  • Add the aubergine and mushrooms to the squash mixture and the stir in the coconut cream. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Serve the vegan vegetable curry with the rice and garnish with the crunchy slivered almonds.
