How to make this recipe

  2. Add half of the toasted pumpkin seeds into a food processor along with the cilantro, basil, mint and garlic. Process until well combined and leave in the food processor.

  3. Meanwhile, combine the mango flesh and lemongrass in a high-speed blender, blending until smooth. Strain and discard the solids.

  4. Add the lemongrass-mango puree to the food processor, along with the oil, ginger, jalapeño, curry powder, honey, lime juice and salt to taste. Process until well combined.

  5. In a large mixing bowl, combine the daikon radish, zucchini, bell pepper and cauliflower “noodles.” Add in the mango-curry sauce and the reserved 1/2 portion of toasted pumpkin seeds. Toss well to combine. Garnish with basil and mint leaves and serve.
