1 1/2cupssmall cauliflower florets - about half a small head with all tough stems removed
1cupdiced fresh green beans - about 10 to 15 beans
1cupdiced yellow onion - 1 small onion
1cupfrozen peas and carrots
2roma tomatoes - diced
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
18-ounce can tomato sauce
Cilantro for garnish
Basmati rice and naan bread for serving
Toast the raw cashews in a large pan set over medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes, until lightly browned. Transfer half the cashews to the bowl of a food processor. Roughly chop the remaining half cup of toasted cashews and set aside for garnish.
Add the ginger, garlic, jalapeno, paprika, cumin seeds, coriander, cardamom, and cinnamon to the food processor. Grind into a coarse paste, adding a tablespoon or two of water if necessary to blend. Set aside.
Heat two tablespoons of coconut oil in a large pan set over medium heat. Add the potato and cauliflower; cook for 4 minutes, until lightly browned and softened. Add the green beans and onions; cook for another 3 to 4 minutes, until the onions turn slightly translucent. Add the frozen peas and carrots, diced tomato, prepared ground spice mixture, turmeric*, and generous pinches of salt and pepper. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until fragrant.
Pour the tomato sauce into the pan, then refill the can with water and add it to the pan (8 ounces or 1 cup). Stir in the raisins and allow the mixture to come to a boil. Turn the heat down to low, cover the pan, and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the potatoes are fork tender and the raisins are plump.
Stir in the coconut cream and simmer for another 3 to 5 minutes, until the dish has thickened to your liking. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed. Garnish with cilantro and reserved cashews. Serve hot, with basmati rice and naan bread.
*Turmeric has the tendency to stain, which is why I recommend not adding it to your plastic food processor bowl. You may also want to consider using a dark colored utensil rather than a wooden spoon when making this dish.
