This is one of those recipes where the day we perfected it at Fit Foodie HQ I wanted to tell EVERYONE about it. Instead of doing that, I’ve made it about 4 times and every time it got better. If you’ve never made tikka masala, you’re in for a treat. This particular recipe is made with cauliflower, sweet potatoes, garbanzo beans, and peas. Yes, it’s vegetarian and yes it’s even vegan! PRAISEEEE THE LAWD. For some reason, vegan recipes freak people out, but it wasn’t actually the intention of this recipe, it just happened.

Linley is the actual mastermind behind this tikka. I was skeptical when she decided to mix coconut milk and tomato sauce, but guys, you must trust us. It’s thick and flavorful and everything your body needs and craves during the winter.

Lucky for you this is a one-pot meal. That’s right, you throw everything into one giant pot and dinner is ready in 30 minutes! The longer you let it simmer, though, the better the spices are going to taste. Oh, and don’t go light on the spices. This is supposed to a dance party in your mouth. We served this recipe with sprouted brown rice and naan. Check out TJ’s or Whole Foods for naan! I’ve never made my own, but I hear it’s pretty easy. If I did make it, I’d follow Gimme Some Oven’s recipe.

Let’s talk about the veggies in this dish really quick. If you’re not digging our veggie choices, try using normal potatoes, any kind of bean, or squash! If you insist on adding meat, I’d go with chicken, or maybe even meatballs. OMG TIKKA MEATBALLS WUT. How have I never thought of that until now?
