Healthy eating is mostly about vegetables, vegetables, and more vegetables. Sure, there are some fruits, whole grains, and maybe a bite of dark chocolate or two... But, the more you fill yourself with vegetables, the less you'll want to eat the other stuff. Plus, veggies fill you up with fewer calories. Oh, and I guess there are vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. If you're into that sort of thing.
The more colorful the better, but don't forget about white! Cauliflower has a mild, slightly nutty flavor. If you need to add more veggies to your diet, give cauliflower a try! There are so many ways to prepare- riced, mashed, scalloped, roasted, or Buffalo-style. Plus, it makes a decent vegan substitute in many dishes. Some may even be happy dipping these raw florets into a giant bowl of ranch... Not this girl! No, thank you.
But, cooked cauliflower- now that's a horse of a different color! Especially when roasted...so good!
This time, I decided to top roasted cauliflower florets with a flavorful sauce. Popular in Southeast Asia and Great Britain, tikka masala is a spiced curry sauce often served over chicken. This creamy, tomato-based dish is seasoned with a number of spices that add warmth and a bit of heat.
For a quick dish ready in about 30 minutes, roast the cauliflower while the sauce is simmering on the stove. Serve solo or with rice.
Roasted cauliflower has a mild flavor that goes well with many other dishes.
Whether you're full vegan or just a supporter of meatfree Mondays, this cauliflower tikka masala adds warmth and spice to roasted cauliflower. So hearty and filling, you'll never miss the meat!
