Meatless Monday - Coconut Curry Cauliflower



Here's another one of my non-recipes. I took a head of cauliflower, and broke it into pieces. I added the cauliflower to boiling water and cooked it about three quarters of the way. It should still be very firm when poked with a fork. I drained it in a colander, and set it aside. In the same pot, I sauteed some chopped onion (about a 1/4 of an onion), minced garlic, and minced ginger in a little olive oil, until the onion was translucent. I poured in a can of coconut milk and season it with Cayenne pepper, curry powder, salt, and pepper. I cooked the sauce for a few minutes, then added the reserved cauliflower, and cooked it until the cauliflower was done. Served it over a bed of rice. Really good stuff!

This almost makes cauliflower sounds good (and given my attitude to cauliflower that is saying something!)

That looks so creamy and delicious! Cauliflower and curry just goes together so well, I think.

I've never done cauliflower with coconut milk (although I can't eat it without spices). It sounds delicious, all creamy and delectable I'm sure.

It was my first time combining these flavors, but it certainly won't be the last.

Hi, Jennifer!

I wanted to check in on you, as your area was mentioned as having a lot of damage at a local marina because of the tsunami. I hope you're high and dry and safe! You're in my thoughts (along with so many others!)

I love cauliflower raw or cooked, alone or in a melange, and this looks delicious!
