>Curried Cauliflower

Posted on

>I love cauliflower, but it’s a vegetable I forget that I like, and I rarely eat it. I always go for broccoli-which admittedly goes bad more often than not before it’s consumed. NOT SO with cauliflower. Which is why, even though broccoli is nutritionally superior, I will probably be buying cauliflower regularly for the time being, and forgoing broccoli until I crave it again.

My favorite thing to do with cauliflower is roast it. Normally I roast it with a little oil, a splash of tamari, and a generous amount of pepper. But last night; I wanted something with more bite, and since roasting things in vinegar and olive oil seems to turn out well; I thought I’d try that out. But if you know me…you know I love spices, and I couldn’t just make something simple.

I made a dresssing of: (ingredients listed in the order of amounts, from most to least, i just toss stuff in!)
Red Wine Vinegar
Olive Oil
Reduced Sodium Tamari
Curry Powder
Cumin
Paprkia
Mustard Powder
Coriander Seed, crushed
Agave
Freshly Ground Pepper

Combine dressing ingredients. Add cauliflower florets and an onion, quartered (do not cut it any smaller, it will burn while roasting!), and stir until well coated. Pour out on a parchment or foil lined baking sheet, bake at 450 for 36-40 minutes, stirring every 12 minutes or so to prevent burning and sticking.

About laceythevegan

I'm a reader, a food lover, a crazy cat lady, an animal lover, local shopper and local music supporter. You can find me in East Nashville most of the time, shopping, having a drink at a locally owned bar, or eating food at a local restaurant. I like cumin and smoked paprika way more than I should, winter squashes make me happy, and while I do like most fruits, I only *love* berries and mangoes. I'd rather have salty snacks than sweets, and the darker chocolate is, the better. I still think Earth Balance is the best fake butter, Vegenaise is the best vegan mayo, and Almond Milk tastes better than soy milk. Chia seeds are my favorite egg substitute for the most part, and pumpkin tends to bind better than applesauce-especially in chocolate goods. I know a lot about food and nutrition, but that doesn't mean I'm the healthiest person. I tend to avoid eating out because I know I can make food that tastes better at home.
