Recipe: Vegan curry with cauliflower, potato & chickpeas.



If you follow my blog then you'll know that whenever I am cooking with tomatoes, my go to is always Cirio!

Here are some recipes I've posted already using some of their range:





These meals are all staples in my house now and I know that as long as I have some Cirio in the cupboard that I can always rustle up a meal!

But we are currently doing #Veganuary or at least trying to eat much more vegan friendly and meat-free meals as a family as we can in a bid to stay healthy and more mindful of the foods we consume and where they have come from.

Obviously all of the recipes above feature meat so for our first vegan meal I thought I'd go with a curry, something which I know they all love!

This curry is SO super easy and can be adapted to suit your own tastes and to suit whatever vegetables and spices you have in your fridge and cupboards. 

There are no rules when it comes to this curry, as long as you have your basic sauce (which is made from store cupboard ingredients) you can be as creative as you like, using your own personal favourites or using up leftovers.

This curry is flavoursome but not overly spicy so if you like it hot just add more!
