Chicken & Apricot Curry
1 tsp sunflower oil
1 small shallot, finely chopped
2 tsp korma or mild curry paste (or to taste)
200ml/7fl oz coconut milk (or 1/2 of a 400ml tin)

150g/5 1/2 oz skinless, boneless chicken breast or thigh (1 medium breast or 2 thighs), cut into 2 mm cubes
Cooked white rice or cous cous, to serve

Heat the oil in a medium sized saucepan and sauté the shallot for 3-4 minutes, until soft. Add the curry paste and cook 1 minute, then stir in the coconut milk, water and apricots. Bring to a boil then reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes, until the apricots start to soften. Add the chicken, cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the chicken and apricots are both tender. Add an extra tablespoon of water if the sauce becomes too thick.

Makes 10 portions


Cheesy Pasta Stars
125g (4 oz) carrots
30g (1 oz) butter)
3 medium tomatoes (approx 200g), ripe tomatoes, skinned, de-seeded and chopped
50g grated Cheddar cheese
2 tbsp Annabel Karmel pasta stars cooked until soft

Steam the carrots for 15 to 20 minutes or until tender. Warm the butter in a separate pan, add the chopped tomatoes and sauté until mushy. Remove from the heat and stir in the cheese until melted.
Meanwhile cook the pasta stars in boiling water according to the instructions on the packet, then drain.
Mash or puree the cooked carrots in an electric hand blender, together with 3 tablespoons of the liquid from the bottom of the steamer and blend together the tomato and cheese mixture. Finally stir in the cooked pasta stars


Pork & Apricot Puree
1/2 small onion (30g), finely chopped
1 tsp sunflower oil
2 small boneless pork loin chops, all fat removed (140g trimmed weight, 1 1/2cm thick)
1 bay leaf
4 tbsp Annabel Karmel’s Apricot Smoothie Spread

Heat the sunflower oil in a wok or deep frying pan, add the onion and sauté over a medium heat for 10 minutes, until soft and translucent. Remove the onion and increase the heat to high.

Add the pork to the hot pan and brown quickly for around 1 1/2 minutes on each side, then pour in enough cold water to just cover the meat (approx. 600ml). Add the bay leaf and bring up to a simmer, then reduce the heat to low and poach gently for 10 minutes, turning the chops halfway through. Transfer the pork to a plate and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Reserve 4 tablespoons of the cooking liquid.

Cut the cooked pork into 1cm cubes and put in a blender, along with the onion, Apricot Spread and reserved cooking liquid. Puree until smooth.
