I’ve been really into curried flavors lately. Curried soups, curried salads, and curried vegetables.
In particular, curried cauliflower, because I love the texture and flavor combo. The curry powder gets into all the nooks and crannies of the cauliflower floret, the flavor intensifies as the veggie bakes.
Pretty excited about veggies on a Monday!
I’ve been making these big veggie bowls for dinner and the occasional lunch (when I have the extra time) and I’ve been loving them, particularly with lentils – it’s just a perfect match.
Since many people asked about my “curried cauliflower” I figured I’d build it into a spiralized recipe here on the blog and share my secret. The secret? Curry powder. Simple as that!
The lentils provide a healthy, lean protein and the carrot noodles and cauliflower make this dish a robust lunch or an ample side dish to dinner. The honey-cumin dressing complements the curried cauliflower, but a nice tahini drizzle would work nicely here too. And heck, a fried egg would do, if you’re pinched for time!
Happy Monday! This week is jam-packed with work again. I felt like last week would never end, but this week is going to be exactly the same. Crazy weather, crazy work schedule.
Also, Lu and I just got into Big Little Lies on HBO. Is anyone else watching it? It’s great to have a Sunday show. And then, of course, Lu’s looking most forward to tonight’s 3-hour The Bachelor special.
When I first met Lu, I remember a female friend of his texted him and was like, “How excited are you for the Bachelor tonight?” At first, I was like, “Excuse me? Who’s this girl?” and then I thought, “Wait, you watch The Bachelor?!”
Then I quickly learned he’s watched every single season and is very invested in the show. Let’s just say that his brother, in his best man speech, almost brought with him a single red rose to hand off to me during the speech and make a joke about “the final rose.” I can’t.
