Slow-cooked sweet potato, mixed bean & jackfruit chilli

#AceFoodDesk Ellie Curshen says sometimes you just want to eat something that’s been bubbling away gently in a big pot or cooking slowly in the oven, developing rich, intense flavours. If you follow a plant-based or vegetarian diet, or are trying to eat less meat, satisfy those comfort-food cravings with Waitrose Weekend columnist Elly Curshen’s recipes

“These recipes can be adapted in all sorts of ways. Pasta with a creamy nut-based sauce can go in lots of directions, as can a braised tofu stir-fry – swap pak choi for your favourite green veg. A tray of roasted veg mixed with chickpeas is a great weeknight dinner that can be eaten cold for lunch the next day, and the coconut rice pudding could be swapped with any stewed fruit if you don’t fancy plums.”

Nutritional yeast adds a delicious umami flavour to the cashew cream. Lentil pasta is high in protein, but regular pasta will work well, too
