- Preheat oven to 180ºC and line 2 oven trays with baking paper.
- To make sauce, place pumpkin, fennel, tomato and pineapple in dry roasting tin and dry roast for 20 mins until golden brown. This intensifies their natural flavours.
- At same time, prepare vegetables and fish: cook onion and fennel on first lined tray for 10 mins. Place cubes of fish on second lined tray and cook for 5 mins. Set aside.
- Place leeks, roasted vegetables (not onion and fennel) and pineapple in heavy-based saucepan and sauté with blended aromatics for 2–3 mins. Add turmeric, spice mix, coconut nectar and the curry paste and continue cooking for 5 mins, gradually adding stock as it cooks, to ensure flavours are activated.
- Add cashew nuts, coconut milk and remaining stock and continue cooking, covered, on low heat for 20 mins. Add lime zest and juice, remove from heat and cool for 5 mins.
- Transfer to blender and blend until smooth. Add herbs and season to taste, if required. Return sauce to clean saucepan and add cooked onion, fennel and fish and cauliflower, broccoli and spinach. Simmer for further 10 mins.
- Tip: The key to this recipe is building the flavours of the sauce by maximising the flavour potential of the ingredients.
