Curried Cauliflower

Cauliflower is so versatile and literally takes on various flavors.  It can be mashed, roasted, grilled, steamed, slow-cooked and sauteed.  My husband loves Indian-inspired dishes with grilled chicken or lamb so this dish is a regular in our household.  The unique spice blend of curried cauliflower adds a warm hue which adds visual interest and an exotic taste.

This version is gluten and dairy free so give it a try!  If you prefer to season the cauliflower and roast or grill it instead – that’s OK too.  It’s delicious either way.
