Vegetarian food may sound bland, but it needn’t be. Plenty of aromatics--such as onions, garlic, a small amount of spices and fresh herbs--can make a world of difference.
For this vegetable dish, a mini-food processor can finely mince the aromatics in no time. I find the tiny pieces of garlic and ginger yield a nice mellow flavor in little cooking time. Ultimately, the spice level in any recipe is a matter of taste, so be judicious. And always add the fresh herbs at the end.
There, oh-so- not- boring vegetarian food. Serve this with basmati rice.
