This Comforting Vegan Aubergine And Chickpea Curry Will Boost Your Immune System

Plus: It'll boost your immune system.

I am a huge fan of dietician Jess Sepel and all the amazing work she does at JSHealth — including her healthy vegan recipes.

Due to the rise in popularity in plant-based diets, Jess has created a vegan meal plan. So, if you’re thinking of going vegan (check it out here). Jess also put together this very handy article on how to thrive on a vegan diet (read it here). Some of her top tips include things like:

  • Incorporate smoothies into your diet for extra protein and nutrient kicks.
  • Include more sea vegetables such as nori, soy, tempeh (one to two times each week) and dried shiitake mushrooms to up your vitamin B12 intake.
  • Eat dark leafy greens like spinach, plus lentils, tahini, nuts and blackstrap molasses to up iron levels.

Why I think this vegan recipe is so great

  1. Looking for a delish desk lunch? Make extra of this recipe to pack for work. Just keep the greens separate and add all together once the rest of the ingredients are heated.
  2. The curry powder, tomatoes and kale are all super immune-booster foods. If you’re looking to boost your health through the transitional season, pack these in.
  3. You get three sources of plant protein here: chickpeas, nuts and brown rice. Plus, there’s plenty of gut-healthy fibre to keep you feeling fuller for longer.
