I am currently 100% obsessed with this easy dinner. I came up with it a couple of weeks ago in an attempt to clean up the fridge and since then, I have made it two more times. It’s easy and it’s pretty healthy and it’s delicious. It is also a vegetarian dinner and is great for leftovers for lunch the next day. Let’s dub it Sweet Potato Curry with Roasted Cauliflower.
First, you need to roast the cauliflower. I have never been a fan of cauliflower. Last week, my sister and I had a talk about it and how we have never liked it. I think because of it’s colour, it just seems to lack nutrients and it just seems to boring. However, roast it up and it’s a dream. I recently discovered that you can roast a cauliflower whole and now my life has changed. So very little effort is required so this should be particularly enticing for those of you who hate cutting vegetables.
Heat your oven to 400 F. Cut off the green bits and stem from the cauliflower carefully so that it doesn’t fall apart. Put it in a skillet or oven-proof dish. Rub EVOO all over it, sprinkle salt, cover with foil and let it bake for 40-50 minutes depending on the size of the cauliflower. Remove the foil and let it cook for a further ten minutes. Pull it out of the oven and that thing will slice like butter. It’s hard to stand there at the stove and not eat it all right then and there. Like butter, I tell you.
While the cauliflower is cooking, spiralize a sweet potato. If you don’t have a spiralizer, stop right now, head over to Amazon and buy one. It will change your life. It will make you enjoy eating your vegetables more, I promise. I used the medium blade to make the sweet potato seem like noodles. Cut up a red onion and cook it in a skillet with some EVOO. Once soft, add a couple of tablespoons of your favourite curry paste. Add a can of coconut milk and more curry paste. Throw in the sweet potato noodles and a can of chickpeas and let that baby cook until the noodles are soft. Serve it up with a few slices of that sweet cauliflower on top and you are set. Make it tomorrow, enjoy and then tell me all about it!
