Carrot, butter bean and Celeriac Curry

I adapted this recipe from a Jamie Oliver recipe I found – I am always looking for easy curries and this one had the least number of ingredients I could find. This is perfect for these winter evenings. I’ve also stuck in a little raw cabbage as an optional extra. We tend to forget about the importance of raw food in the winter so this is an easy way of sticking it in.
