A Brazilian recipe that’s hugely popular amongst those that live by the coast. The huge flavour is added through the jalapenos, cumin seeds and turmeric root among other spices which we have pounded into a fragrant paste. This is what brings a warm, spicy and sweet flavour to the coconut milk while the aromatic garnish completes the dish.

    Bring 250ml of water to the boil in a lidded saucepan and add the rice. Reduce the heat to low, cover with a lid and simmer for 10-12 mins until the rice is tender. Or cook as per packet instructions.

  2. Fry the vegetables

    Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a large pan or casserole dish over a medium heat and when hot, add the onion and stir-fry for 2- mins to soften.

    Add the BRAZILIAN PASTE to the pan, stir well and then add the butternut squash, the pepper and the tomatoes.

    Stir fry for 2 mins then add the GARLIC AND COCONUT, stirring to coat the vegetables.

  3. Create the sauce

    Add the coconut milk along with 150ml water to the pan and bring it to a gentle boil and then let it simmer for 6-7mins, gently mashing the tomatoes to soften them and blend the flavours together.

Really easy to cook. Did find it quite spicy but noted the comments in other reviews and added more coconut milk and a side of Greek yogurt, which worked really well. Overall extremely happy and will definitely be ordering again.

This was a belter. Easy. Tasty. Filling. Have reviews and tips. Not either or...I would also have a recommendation to put in lesser water or none because some people (me) would prefer less 'watery' so that it would be more thicker consistency.
