Cauliflower and chickpea curry

This curry feels like a real blow out meal, however it's still low in fat, high in protein and really easy to prepare.

Cauliflower and chickpea curry

This dish stores well in the fridge, making it perfect for preparing in advance when time is tight. Add more veggies and leave out the chicken fillets, as well as opting for a vegetable stock cube instead.
