Spiralized Aloo Gobi
Aloo gobi is a vegetarian dish from India that’s made with potatoes, cauliflower and Indian spices. When I order Indian takeout, I always get aloo gobi! It’s the perfect balance of light and hearty and it has just enough spice. While the potatoes in the aloo gobi dish are typically cubed, this version uses spiralized potatoes, to transform this into a noodle-like dish.
The spiralized potatoes ensure that you get a little bit of potato and cauliflower in every bite. The potatoes absorb the Indian spices, making for a robust and flavorful meal. By using spiralized potatoes, since they’re sliced more thinly than a cubed potato, the cook time reduces dramatically, so this version of aloo gobi is also quick and easy.
I love stirring in lentils or chickpeas into this aloo gobi for some protein, to truly make it a complete meal. You could also serve this alongside some tandoori chicken or lamb, but this aloo gobi is vegan and gluten-free.
