In our house, this is a family favorite. I love it because it is fast, delicious, and healthy. Mid-week, I always find it refreshing to enjoy a dinner that is packed with flavor. This fits the bill. —Juliette

In This Recipe
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
On a large cutting board, mash garlic with a large pinch of salt until a smooth paste forms. Add the paste to a large roasting pan and mix the paste with curry powder and your oil of choice.
Add onion, eggplant, cauliflower, chickpeas and ginger to the roasting pan. Season with salt and pepper and roast for 30-35 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. The vegetables should all be tender and the eggplant should be mushy when done roasting.
Stir in the baby spinch and add an additional drizzle of oil, if dry. Return the roasting pan back to the oven and roast until the baby spinach is wilted. This should only take a minute or two.
Serve with a dallop of yogurt, oven rice or with warm naan.
