2 tbsp sunflower oil
2 onions, chopped
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp ground ginger

400ml milk
Chives, chopped (to serve)

Instructions

  1. Put the oil and onions in the biggest saucepan you have and cook on a medium heat until soft for 5-10 minutes. Stir in the spices and cook for a further 2 minutes, then add the rough cut carrot with half the beans and the vegetable stock. Bring to a simmer, then cover and cook for 15-20 minutes, until the carrots are tender.
