I love everything about Indian food. The abundance of vegetables used, the texture, the aroma, the spices and the warmth generated from them. But, cooking it at home completely intimidates me!
A long time ago I took a series of cooking classes on Indian cuisine. I was lost after the first session. There are so many different spices used such as cardamom, asafoetida, curry leaves, coriander seeds, garam masala, and the list goes on and on! Someday I will build up my spice arsenal, but for now I will stick to simply using curry powder!
There are so many ways you can alter this recipe!

- 2 tablespoons olive oil divided
- 1/2 onion diced
- 4 cloves of garlic minced
- 1 teaspoon fresh ginger root grated
- 1 tablespoon curry powder
- 1 sweet potato peeled and chopped into small bite-sized pieces
- 2 cups cauliflower florets
- 2 carrots chopped
- 1 block tofu drained and cubed
- 1 cup vegetable broth
- 1 can coconut milk
- 3 cups baby spinach leaves
- 1/2 cup fresh cilantro chopped
- sea salt to taste
- 1/2 lemon sliced
- 1 cup brown basmati rice uncooked
- Cook rice according to package and set aside.
- Fill a medium-sized sauce pan halfway with water and bring to a boil. Add cauliflower and cook for 2 minutes or until crisp tender, drain and set aside.
- Add curry powder and stir. The curry powder will absorb most of the oil, do not burn. Add the remaining tablespoon of olive oil, carrots, sweet potatoes and tofu. Cook for 2 minutes.
- Season with sea salt and more curry powder if desired.
- Serve over hot basmati rice, garnish with fresh cilantro, a spritz of lemon juice and enjoy 🙂
