Imagine sharing food off your plate with a co-worker. Yes, definitely pre-covid days 😅 !
I met my hubby at work. I always felt so comfortable and HAPPY 😃 being around him from the first time I saw him. I remember sharing a meal with him before we even realized we were falling 😍 for each other. At a corporate function for dinner, we sat a seat apart and examined the plates in front of us. I eyed the delicious steak on his plate while he eyed the veggies on mine. When I stated that I didn’t care for veggies, he seemed quite shocked and then amazed 😳 at how much meat I consumed with gusto. So, I did the only polite thing I could think of, I offered him my veggies. Then I proceeded to reach over the co-worker between us (HR director 😂 !!) to dish my untouched veggies onto his plate.
I’ve come a long way since then. With his *ahem* encouragement 🙄, I’ve learnt to really like them. I actually eat salads for lunch now 😇 with a TON of salad dressing, thank you very much! I realized that it really comes down to how they are spiced. Yes, I’m one of those people who does need spices on my veggies to eat them. So, here’s a recipe for cauliflower curry that I absolutely LOVE❤️ . It’s made with my mom’s mouthwatering Potato and Egg fry seasoning kit with a few adjustments to cater to the delicate texture of cauliflower. I love how simple it is to make. It's gluten-free, keto friendly and a vegan recipe for those on a plant based diet. Most of all, I still can’t believe 😳 I’m actually eating my veggies AND loving it.
So why not give it a try ⁉️ I think you’ll love❤️ it too!
Cauliflower: 4-5 cups of florets
Olive oil: 3 Tablespoons
Onion: 1 cup finely diced; preferably purple or yellow
Tomatoes: 1 ½ cups diced
Potato and Egg Fry Seasoning kit: 1 kit from Anar Gourmet Foods, based on my lovely 💕 mom’s recipe
Cilantro: ½ cup fresh leaves, washed and rough chop (optional)
Jalapeño pepper: ½ thumb sized finely diced (optional)
Note: I did not use a jalapeño when I made this dish, as it is quite spicy without the jalapeño. However, please feel free to add some if you like it spicy HOT.🔥
- Heat oil in quart pot over medium heat.
- Add onions & jalapeño (optional), sauté for 5-7 mins till onions are golden brown or edges start to curl in.
- Add spices from seasoning kit. Mix for 1-2 mins till spices stick to onions.
- Add tomatoes, simmer until soft about 3-5 mins.
- Add cauliflower florets and mix well.
- Cover pot with tight fitting lid, let simmer for 8-10 mins till fork tender. Make sure you check cauliflower at 8 min mark for desired texture, so it’s not too mushy.
- Sprinkle cilantro (optional), mix well.
Serve with rice, naan, chapatis or alongside a main entrée for a keto friendly meal. Download the recipe HERE.
