Indian cuisine is my all-time favorite. Creamy curries, aromatic seasonings, spicy meats offset with cooling yogurt-based sauces and desserts… oh my, I’m in heaven at the thought. Aloo Gobi is a dish traditionally made with potatoes, tomatoes, and cauliflower in a rich blend of mostly seed-based seasonings. By subbing taro, carrots, and safe spices, my autoimmune protocol version is creamy, smells incredible, and is every bit as delicious and comforting as the traditional dish, even if it doesn’t boast quite the same amount of heat. Plus, isn’t it pretty? I love the vibrant colors in this dish.
