Tomato and white bean curry

I had a glut of tomatoes as I over-ordered from Isle of Wight Tomatoes. I love a tom curry, so I made this one up and added creamy white beans for the protein. An excellent marriage it is too! Bursting with flavour and goodness.

Cooking Thai rice in coconut milk makes the whole thing even better.

Ingredients

  • Lots of ripe and juicy tomatoes, chopped into chunks. Equivalent of 8-10 regular size toms.
  • 1 red onion or 2 large shallots, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and crushed
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 level teaspoon of dried chilli flakes
  • 1 tablespoon of curry powder
  • 1 heaped teaspoon of dried turmeric
  • 400-500g jarred white beans, I use Bold Bean Co.
  • 2 heaped tablespoons of tomato puree
  • 50g ground almonds
  • 4 tablespoons full fat creme fraiche
  • sea salt

PS. I did throw in some baby broad beans, just because they were hanging around!

I cooked Thai Hom Mali rice in a mix of coconut milk and water, but use any rice you like

Nutrition Info

Tomatoes

Tomatoes are rich in lycopene which is a pokey antioxidant. Antioxidants are like bouncers at a night club, they go around finding stray electrons that are busy causing trouble in your body, and find them a love partner so they can both stay in and cuddle on the sofa.

Tomatoes are also a brilliant source of vitamin C, which supports skin and connective tissue health as well as immunity and iron absorption. The biotin in tomatoes is good for controlling blood sugar.
