Our recipes classified as Dairy Free are based on products that do not contain any dairy containing ingredients at the time of publishing, However, product ingredients can change so always double check labels.
These recipes can be frozen after cooking following these basic guidelines:
Cool food before freezing.
Place food into sealable plastic bags. It is important to remove as much air as possible to avoid freezer burn. While this doesn’t harm the food, it will affect the texture and colour.
Alternatively place food into appropriate sized airtight containers to avoid freezer burn. However, ensure to leave enough headspace between the lid and the container because your food will expand during freezing.
Label and date food before freezing.
Cooked food can be reheated from frozen.
Freeze cooked food for a maximum of 2-3 months. And remember if in doubt throw it out!
These recipes exclude all animal products including red meat, pork, fish, poultry, milk, eggs, honey, animal fats and gelatin.
To ensure you are using vegan suitable ingredients, we recommend checking the ingredient lists on products before you use them.
Our Vegetarian Recipe collection are suitable for lacto-ovo-vegetarians, so therefore eggs and cow’s milk products are included. They do not contain red meat, pork, fish or poultry. We recommend checking ingredient labels to ensure you are using vegetarian suitable ingredients, for example, check cheese labels to ensure they are made with vegetarian rennet.
We love this curry for so many reasons! It’s super quick and easy to make, full of authentic flavours and packed full of veggies. Plus it’s great to make ahead of time and the flavours are even better the next day.

1 small onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 tsp finely grated ginger
1 tsp Gregg's Whole Cumin Seeds
1 tsp Gregg's Ground Coriander
400g can Wattie’s Crushed and Sieved Tomatoes
400g can Wattie's Lentils in Springwater, drained
½ tsp sugar (optional)
50g baby spinach leaves
½ cup coconut milk
Coriander leaves to garnish (optional)
Lemon wedges (to serve)
Heat a dash of oil in a medium sized lidded pan over low heat. Add the onion, garlic and ginger and sauté until the onion softens. Add the Gregg’s Whole Cumin Seeds and Gregg’s Ground Coriander and cook for a further minute to allow the spices to ‘cook out’.
Add the Wattie’s Crushed and Sieved Tomatoes, drained Wattie’s Lentils and sugar if using. Stir and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes, covering the pan if the sauce is reducing too much. Stir occasionally to avoid the lentils sticking to the base of the pan.
Add the baby spinach leaves and coconut milk and continue cooking until the spinach wilts and sauce is hot. Season to taste. Garnish with coriander, if wished.
Serve with basmati rice, lemon wedges and poppadoms if wished.
Adding the sugar helps to reduce the acidity of the tomatoes and draw out the flavours.
Leftover coconut milk will keep in the fridge for 2–3 days or freeze in an airtight container for use at a later date.
Swap it out
Replace the Wattie’s Crushed and Sieved Tomatoes with Wattie’s Chopped Tomatoes.
If you don’t have Gregg's Cumin or Gregg's Coriander, you can replace with 1 Tbsp Gregg's Curry Powder.
Try spinach instead of frozen peas.
You can also try replacing Wattie's Lentils with Wattie's Chickpeas.
Replace the coconut cream with fresh cream or natural unsweetened Greek yoghurt but make sure this is added at the end of cooking to avoid the sauce curdling.
