Curried Cauliflower Sauté – “A Salad For Each Week” #37


After a morning of cleaning the other day, I surveyed my fridge and decided that Indian fare was what I wanted for lunch. With the already chopped cauliflower I had on hand, I quickly cut the other veggies and heated up my cast iron skillet for this warm and savory dish. You can also serve this chilled over a bed of spinach or baby greens which soak up the juices and spices. Warm or cold – I love the flavors in this!

  • 2 cups cauliflower, chopped

  • 1/2 cup tomatoes, diced

  • 1/2 cup celery, chopped

  • 1/4 cup onion, diced

  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  • 1 tablespoon Indian spice mix (recipe below)

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil

  • 1 tablespoon water

  • Hot sauce, optional

  • Fresh cilantro

Heat coconut oil over medium high heat in a skillet. Add cauliflower, tomatoes, celery, onion, and garlic. Sauté for 5 minutes. Add in water, Indian spice mix, and hot sauce. Simmer for another 5 minutes. Serve warm and garnished with cilantro. Makes 2-4 servings.

Indian Spice Mix
4 teaspoons cumin

2 teaspoons curry

2 teaspoons turmeric

2 teaspoons coriander

1 teaspoon Garam Masala

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt

Mix together and save remainder for future use.
