I sometimes talk about the trifecta of a good meal: easy, healthy and delicious. These curried vegetable flatbreads are all three! Big chunks of aubergine, pepper and mushrooms are simply tossed in a little oil and plenty of spices before being roasted to perfection – and you all know how I feel about roasted vegetables (roasting even made me fall in love with my least favourite vegetable).
Of course you can serve your curried roasted vegetables however you like, but I’d really recommend topping them with a good dollop of Greek yogurt and some salad leaves. The yogurt is a great cooling contrast against the slightly spicy curried veg, and the salad adds a nice bit of crunch. Wrapped up in a flatbread, this recipe made a really good lunch.
I used naan bread, but you could use any sort of flatbread. Actually the naan wasn’t quite flat enough to wrap the veggies properly, so something a little thinner would probably be even better. Mine ended up more like a pizza, and while I can’t imagine myself ever complaining about pizza (ever ever), it’s not really what I was going for. Trying to wrap it up ended up in a bit of a mess. Either way tastes great though!
Sorry for the short post; life is a bit hectic lately! I will explain all next week!
