  1. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C. Tip the swede onto a baking tray and toss with half the oil; season. Roast for 35-40 mins until golden and tender.
  2. Meanwhile, boil the eggs for 6 mins. Transfer to iced water; once cool, peel and halve; set aside.
  3. Heat the remaining oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5-6 mins until soft. Stir in the curry paste, then add the coconut milk, lime juice and a pinch of salt. Bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer and add the spinach. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 1-2 mins until wilted. Stir in the roasted swede.
  4. Divide between bowls and top with the eggs, then garnish with the chilli and coriander. Serve with bread or rice, and chutney, if you like.
