This dish pairs perfectly with the GF vegan naan. Its packed with spinach and super healthy protein making it one of the best warming weeknight dinners out there. There are a million ways to make this dish, this is my version! You can kick up the spice by adding more chilies, or make it a bit runnier by adding a bit more veggie stock.
