Spiced Broccoli and Cauliflower

Need a vegetable accompaniment for your curry night?

I’ve got you sorted. I find a veg dish always goes down a treat on curry night. I’ll serve up a big curry, rice, a potato dish, veg dish and normally some form of bhajis. I love carbs. All vegan of course, and all amazing! Any leftovers get reheated the following evening for dinner, and in my opinion taste even better where they’ve been left to sit in their marinades.

Cauliflower and broccoli absorb the spices really well and roasting them at a high heats gives them the loveliest of flavours. You’ll probably have the majority of the spice ingredients already in your cupboards as well.

Sprinkle with some diced chilli to finish and serve them up with the rest of your wonderful homemade dishes.
