Yield: 2 servings

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes

Make these easy low-fat vegan recipes for the whole family or during meal prep! Find quick weeknight meals, portable lunch ideas and filling breakfast recipes in this collection. The following Indian curried potato and cauliflower Aloo Gobi is ready in under an hour, super flavorful and perfect for meal prep.


Aloo Gobi

  • 1 lb potatoes (450 g), cubed
  • 2 cups cauliflower (210 g), chopped into small florets
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1-inch piece of ginger, minced
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp curry powder
  • ½ tsp turmeric, ground
  • ½ tsp red pepper flakes
  • ¼ tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 15-oz (425 g) can chopped tomatoes
  • 3 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Vegan yogurt (to garnish)


  1. Preheat your oven to 400° F (200° C) and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Arrange cubed potatoes and cauliflower on the prepared baking sheet in a singer layer and season with salt and pepper to taste. Place them into the oven and roast for around 15 minutes, until the potatoes and cauliflower are slightly tender. It’s okay if they aren’t all done yet – they will finish cooking on the stovetop.
  3. Add onion, garlic, and ginger with a splash of water to a medium pot and place over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is soft and translucent, around 4-5 minutes.
  4. Add cumin, curry powder, turmeric, red pepper flakes, and smoked paprika. Cook and stir for 1-2 more minutes, until the spices become fragrant.
  5. Add the canned tomatoes, roasted potatoes and cauliflower as well as more water so that everything is covered in liquid.
  6. Cover with a lid and cook for 10 minutes until the potatoes and cauliflower are fork-tender.
  7. Remove from heat, divide between serving bowls and garnish with fresh cilantro and a dollop of vegan yogurt.


  • This Aloo Gobi can be enjoyed on its own or alongside some rice, green salad or freshly baked bread!
  • For a creamier version, add some coconut milk towards the end of the cooking process.
  • If you don’t have an oven (or don’t want to use it), you can just cook the potatoes and cauliflower in the pot alongside the spices for the additional 15 minutes they would take in the oven.
