Beetroot and pumpkin curry
This veggie-packed curry takes a bit of cutting work for the pumpkin (except if you got hold of pre-cut pumpkin pieces) but otherwise it’s a very easy one-pot recipe. The beetroot gives a lovely colour and together with the lemon juice this is a fresh and satisfying low-carb curry.

This looks delicious. I make lots of vegetable and lentil curries, but have never added beetroot. Can’t wait to try it.
