What vegetable is the darling of the low carb world? That’s right — cauliflower. I’ve lost track of the number of recipes that I’ve seen that use cauliflower as a substitute for potatoes, bread and other starchy things. Sometimes I want my cauliflower to taste like cauliflower, only better. Adding some curry powder does the trick!
Isn’t that a pretty one? This isn’t really a recipe. It’s more of a suggestion of how to turn a beautiful vegetable into something that is even more tasty!
A few fresh carrots and some onion to add color and more flavor.
All mixed and ready for some seasoning love!
I added some salt and cumin to my regular mild curry powder to make it even more yummy! Confession time — I don’t measure when I do this sort of thing. I’d estimate that that I added a teaspoon each of salt, pepper and cumin to a tablespoon of curry powder. Taste your curry powder and decide what you think it needs.
It’s amazing what some olive oil and curry seasoning will do — these vegetables ready for the oven to get roasty and toasty and delicious. I massage the veggies with a few tablespoons of olive oil then sprinkle over the seasoning and toss to coat each piece. Next I slide them into a 400F degree oven for 20 minutes or until the vegetables are well browned and tender.
They really do taste as good as they look! I’ve done the same thing with other veggies — root vegetables like turnips and parsnips are particularly good given this treatment.
