The sky is grey, daylight seems a distant memory, the wind is howling and the rain is hammering against the windows. If you’re anything like me, you’ll probably want to hide under a duvet for the next few weeks, drink hot tea and eat comfort food. Whilst I can’t help with the duvet, I can help with the comfort food! A filling, warming, moreish sweet potato and chickpea curry – the perfect comfort food full of vegetable goodness and flavour. And since it’s Veganuary, this recipe is completely free of any animal products. I can promise you that even meat eaters will love this one and plates will be cleared.
