Let’s get the obvious one out of the way: this meal is packed with veggies, veggies, veggies! You’ll get tons of flavor from ingredients like onion, garlic and red pepper, but the real surprise is just how filling this dish is. Pumpkin, cauliflower, chickpeas and potatoes give you a good amount of fiber so you’ll stay full for hours to come.
While our vegetable curry is a filling dish when eaten on its own, it’s traditionally served over basmati rice. If your diabetes senses are tingling, don’t worry — basmati rice is considered one of the most diabetes-friendly rices out there! It’s a medium- to low-glycemic food that releases its energy slowly, so you don’t need to worry about a spike in blood sugar.
Keep in mind that dishes like this vegetable curry are most flavorful when you use fresh spices. Before you head to the grocery store, poke around in your spice cabinet. If your ground spices have been sitting around for more than a couple years, consider replacing them to get the most flavor out of this dish!
