Split Pea and Cauliflower Curry with Roasted Rutabaga Noodles

If you don’t follow me on social media, then you probably haven’t seen this recipe yet, so I figured I’d re-share it on my blog because it needs to be immortalized on our recipes archive.

Actually, the recipe is on the West Elm blog, so you’ll have to click over there to get it!

And you’ll want to read through the post, because I’m extending an invite to an Inspiralized potluck dinner, for those of you who live in NYC!

Split Pea and Cauliflower Curry with Roasted Rutabaga Noodles

I make this dish a lot – well, not always with rutabaga noodles, but the curry itself is apparently Lu’s “favorite vegan dish” of mine. So there – Lu might as well be a Michelin judge, right? 😉

As for the recipe, it’s one of those one-pot dinners that takes a bit of time to prep, but it’s totally worth it – and comes together all in one pot, so the cleanup is easy.

This dish saves well, too – I serve it with the rutabaga noodles or bread at dinnertime and then I like to serve it over cooked kale for lunch, for something lighter and a bit more refreshing!

However you enjoy this recipe, it’s going to immediately become part of your weeknight dinner rotation. And as I said, not for nothing, it’s Lu’s favorite vegan dish of mine!
