Root Vegetable Bhuna

Root Vegetable Bhuna

Taken from 15 Minute Vegan: On a Budget by Katy Beskow (Quadrille £15) Photography ¬©Dan Jones

I always roast up too many vegetables to go with Sunday lunch. Sometimes accidentally, sometimes intentionally; either way, they make a perfect addition to this simple and spicy bhuna.

  4. Stir in the leftover roasted root vegetables and squeeze over the lemon juice. Season with sea salt.
