This stir-fry would go perfectly with vegetable curry, or with just about any roasted vegetables you want to throw in the oven (cauliflower? Broccoli? Parsnips?). Or try it with cauliflower tortillas in place of the typical flatbread: it’s a little bit of extra time to make the tortillas, but they do make a great, kid-friendly vegetable side.
