The recipe sounds yummy and looks delicious but I’d risk adding a pinch of gharam masala and perhaps hing (asofotedia) and a bit of green chili as I don’t think it would diminish the color and goes so well with spinach and cauliflower, after all we have learned about chakras from eastern countries where these spice flavors are highly valued and just thinking about the subtle flavor of hing is making me breathe more deeply and feel more open :)
