This Cauliflower Curry is such an easy recipe yet packed with flavour and provides a nourishing, meat free, seasonal dish.

You can adapt it to include any vegetables you may have in your fridge but we find cauliflower takes on the spices so well, and is also rich in vitamin C to help support immune health. Carrots are also rich in vitamin C as well as the antioxidant beta-carotene.

The chickpeas are a lovely source of vegetarian protein, important for growth and repair. Spices like turmeric, ginger, garlic and chilli are great for providing support for the respiratory system at a time of year when we may need a bit of extra help in fighting bugs.
