- Place all the paste ingredients in a food processor and blitz into a coarse paste.
- Heat the vegetable oil in a large, heavy based saucepan. Add the paste and Garden Gourmet vegan fillet pieces and sauté over a medium-low heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally making sure the paste doesn’t burn.
- Then add the black-eyed peas, Scotch bonnet chilli and tomato purée and mix. Pour in the tomatoes, vegetable stock and the peanut butter and stir in well. Cover the pan with a lid and bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. After 20 minutes add the sweet potatoes and lid and continue cooking for a further 15 minutes. Add some water to let the consistency down if needed.
- Remove from the heat and stir in the spinach, leaving it to wilt in the pan for 5 minutes. To finish, add the lemon juice, coriander, spring onions and sliced chillies.
