  1. Mix all the dumpling ingredients together (reserving a little coriander) until you have a smooth, thick batter; set aside.

  2. Heat the oil, mustard seeds, turmeric and curry powder in a large ovenproof pan or casserole dish over a medium heat until the seeds start to pop. Add the leeks, garlic, ginger and sweet potatoes and fry for 2 mins, stirring frequently. Add the stock and almond drink, bring to the boil, then simmer for 8 mins until the sweet potato is soft. Mix in the spinach and peas and return to the boil.
