“This is weirdly simple. It sounds and looks like it might be time-consuming or complicated but once you’ve tried this recipe, you’ll see just how easy it is,” promises presenter Fearne Cotton.

“I adore roasted broccoli and it works so well in this curry. The more veg the better, and you’re certainly getting your fill with this dish. The sauce will make your taste buds dance and you’ll feel full, yet not sluggish in the slightest, after devouring this incredible dinner.”

  • Saucepan
  • Blender
  • lined baking tray


  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 2 carrots cut into 1cm pieces
  • 3 garlic cloves crushed
  • 3 cm piece of fresh ginger peeled and grated
  • 1 tbsp mild curry powder
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tbsp white spelt flour
  • 400 ml vegetable stock
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 350 g Tenderstem broccoli
  • 100 g fresh breadcrumbs
  • 3 spring onions finely chopped
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Brown rice to serve


  • Put half the oil into a pan and place over a medium heat. Add the onion, carrots, garlic and ginger and cook gently for eight minutes, stirring frequently, until the onions are translucent, taking care not to let anything burn.
  • Add the curry powder, garam masala, turmeric and flour and stir-fry for another two minutes until fragrant. Gradually stir in the stock and soy sauce and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until thickened and the carrots are cooked through.
  • Using a handheld or upright blender, blitz the sauce until completely smooth, adding in a little water if it is too thick. Season well, to taste.
  • Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/400°F/gas mark 6. Line a baking sheet with foil or baking parchment.
  • Toss the broccoli in the remaining oil, to coat, and season well. Roll in the breadcrumbs until evenly coated, transfer to the lined baking tray and roast for 10-15 minutes until golden and the broccoli is cooked through.
  • Divide the sauce between your plates and top with the katsu broccoli. Scatter the spring onions on top and serve with rice.
