Heat 2 tbs of the coconut oil in a big frying pan over a medium-high heat, add the tempeh and fry for a few minutes until golden. Remove the tempeh from the pan and let sit on a paper towel.
Add the remaining oil to the pan along with the mustard seeds and heat over a medium-low heat until the seeds begin to pop. Throw in the turmeric, paprika and cinnamon and over a low heat combine the spices with the oil until to make a paste.
Add the onion and increase the heat a little continuing to fry until the onion is soft. Add the ginger and coconut and cook for just a minute before adding the rice.
Combine the rice well with the spices and onion, add the cauliflower and cooked tempeh and increase the heat. Add the stock and bring to the boil.
Cover and decrease the heat to low, and let it cook for 10 minutes or until rice is tender and stock nearly absorbed. Add the peas, stir through, cover and cook for a further few minutes until stock is fully absorbed and rice is cooked.
Stir through the cashew nuts (reserving a few for garnish) and sultanas, cover again and stand for 5 minutes before tossing through the fresh coriander.
Serve warm with naan bread, chutney and cucumber yoghurt and enjoy a delicious and warming Meat Free Monday!
