roasted aubergine & cauliflower curry

Boost those winter lurgies into orbit with this easy roasted aubergine and cauliflower curry!

After the decadence of the festive period, a hearty veggie dish wins through in January. We are all currently suffering from some type of lurgy and aren’t feeling at our best, especially me who is immunosupressed. This dish contains warming garam masala and also tumeric known for its anti-inflammatory  properties, but it is more fragrant than spicy. Of course feel free to up the spices to your own taste. Chickpeas add a lovely bit of texture and protein. Served with wholegrain rice this is a filling, nutiritious and low calorie hit. Enjoy, K x
