Cauliflower, Spinach & Pea Curry

I nearly always have a cauliflower dish when eating at Indian restaurants as I think the combination of spices and cauliflower are so complimentary!

This is my version of a classic cauliflower and pea curry, its really quick to make and packs a flavour punch. You can make it in 2o minutes (even quicker if you have some paste already made) so it’s perfect for a weekday meal when you’re craving curry.

The sweetness of the peas works really well with the cauliflower and I think using fresh tomatoes makes the curry much lighter and fresher. I can’t resist topping with crushed peanuts for extra crunch!

As an added bonus the peas and peanuts give you some good plant based protein.
