Veggie Leftover Curry

Veggie Leftover Curry

This is so delicious and for those of you a little like me seem to have loads of veg left over in the fridge – this recipe is fabulous for using them all up.   


Obviously you can use whatever veg you have left over so will work with whatever you have. 


 It will taste delish and you’ll find you are fully satisfied too as the sweet potatoes and butternut really fill you up.
