Cauliflower Curry Confessions
I have a confession to make: I’m not a cauliflower person. However please put my bias aside and decide for yourself if this dish is for you. It’s been awhile since I’ve shared what I’ve been eating, or at least it feels that way to me. With the changing of the weather from cold to warm, my desire to hibernate in the kitchen and conjure up comforting meals slows begins to transition into a desire to eat cold, fresh, and quick fixes. However somehow it rained like crazy yesterday and I ended up whipping up a Roasted Cauliflower Curry.
- 1 medium head of cauliflower
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 block pressed firm tofu, cubed
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
- 1-2 tsp. curry powder
- 1-2 tsp. ground giner
The whole meal was relatively simple to prepare. Set the oven for 450 degrees, and set up a little olive oil in a frying pan to brown up a chopped onion before tossing in a mix of curry and ground ginger. Next toss the onion curry with the cauliflower and a chopped block of pressed tofu until the cauliflower is well coated in curry. Spray a baking pan and spread the cauliflower/tofu/onion mixture and spray once more before placing in the oven. Bake for 10 minutes, then turn over the roasting pieces before baking for another 10 minutes. Should take between 20 and 30 minutes until all veggies and tofu look nice and roasty, and then it’s ready for eating!
I served my cauliflower with some instant brown rice – however you’d be 110% better off with a bit of brown basmati rice. The meal itself was pretty good, but I wasn’t in love with it. If you like Indian and cauliflower – this may be worth trying, as it is incredibly simple, spicy, and flavorful. Unfortunately, the cauliflower and I didn’t fall in love after this dinner affair and I ended up packaging up the leftovers and bringing them to a coworker who fervently expressed her love for the curry medley.
The choice is yours.
Tomorrow is field day at the school I work at so I’m obviously going to end my day with some much needed yoga. On deck for the blog tomorrow? Sharing my new favorite coffee with you and my home decorating scavenger hunt update!
It’s official friends, we’ve made it over hump day – and half way through May. Oh goodness.
