Spiced Vegetable & Chickpea Curry



⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

A mild but flavoursome vegan meat free Monday meal that is hearty and full of gorgeous goodness. This could all be cooked in a large pot on top of the cooker, but I want to roast the onions and peppers to ensure sweet and slightly charred flavour, so I thought why not do the whole process in the oven. It worked really well and was so simple as I let the oven do all the hard work. Delicious cold the next day so make extra.
