Tomato curry, roast veg and turmeric hummus

It feels like an age since my last blog post, so apologies! I’ve been super busy with work, studying and enjoying myself on a Caribbean cruise and then Barcelona for the weekend.

All super exciting and it has inspired me to create some new dishes. I can’t wait to experiment with some coconutty tropical flavours.

Before I left for the Caribbean, I made this delicious tomato curry with roast veg and turmeric hummus. I basically wanted to use up everything I had in my fridge and, as I had lots of vegetables, I roasted everything and serve it with a quick tomato curry on a bed of spiced turmeric hummus.

I used cauliflower (my favourite), fennel, beetroots and peppers, but you could use whatever you have to hand. But I think the peppery fennel combines really well with the other flavours.

The tomato curry is super simple to make and can be whipped up in max 15 minutes and is really lovely with quinoa & salad. Or like here, on a bed of hummus with some crunchy veg which I scooped up with flatbreads.

Delicious tomato-ey goodness.

    I made this recipe last night and it was another excellent rebel recipe. Loved the flavor combination and texture. I will certainly be cooking this again.

  2. I could’ve sworn I mistook this recipe as a work of art! Seriously, this masterpiece blows me away! The tomato curry atop of the hummus would taste great as itself too, but I can imagine it adds the most magical flavors!
