  • Large shallow casserole


  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 Tbsp ginger grated
  • 2 tsp ground coriander
  • 500 g green cabbage head
  • 275 g tomatoes
  • 2 stalks of lemongrass
  • 2 kaffir leaves
  • 250 ml vegetable stock
  • 1 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 150 g jasmine rice (10 minutes cook)
  • 400 ml light coconut milk
  • 250 ml vegetable stock
  • 1 Tbsp tamari sauce
  • 400 g can aduki beans
  • 30 g fresh coriander
  • lime juice


  • 2 limes
  • 1 red chilli


  • Chop the cabbage finely. Cut each tomato into 8 cubes. Bash the lemongrass to bruise the stalks.
  • Heat some olive oil in a large casserole.
  • Add finely chopped onion and fry gently until soft. Add crushed garlic cloves, grated ginger and ground coriander. Fry for another couple of minutes.
  • Add the finely chopped cabbage, cubed tomatoes, bruised lemongrass, kaffir leaves and 250ml (US 1cup) of vegetable stock. Bring to the boil, then cook covered under medium heat for 30 minutes until the cabbage is cooked. Stir from time to time so that the cabbage does not stick to the bottom of the pan.
  • Add the tomato paste, rice, coconut milk, 250ml (US 1cup) of vegetable stock and 1 Tbsp of tamari. Mix well all together. Bring to the boil, then cook covered under medium heat for 15 minutes. Stir from time to time so that the cabbage and rice do not stick to the bottom of the pan.
  • Wash and drain the aduki beans. Mix them into the cabbage and rice mixture along with the finely chopped coriander. Season with lime juice, a bit more tamari sauce if needed and some salt.
  • Remove the lemongrass stalks. Serve with some extra lime juice and chopped fresh red chillies on top.
