Cauliflower and Potato Curry with Peas

A simple curry made with basic pantry spices, potatoes, cauliflower, peas, and coconut milk. You can serve this easy, one pot curry with naan bread, rice, or quinoa.

Cauliflower and Potato Curry with Peas

We have a curry once a week in our family. Curries are so flavorful (if you like curry, that is – ha!), veggie packed, easy to throw together, one pot, and usually can be made with whatever you’ve got in your pantry. We always have multiple cans of coconut milk at a time, because if I don’t know what to have for dinner, I make a curry!

Cauliflower and Potato Curry with Peas

For that reason, I always plan for at least one curry per week and thus, I have a lot of curry recipes and today, I’m sharing with you one of my favorites! Potatoes really soak up the curry spices and makes this curry one you don’t need to serve with any grains – it’s filling already.

The peas give this curry some plant based protein and add the perfect little earthy crunch to every bite. If you can’t find peas, try subbing in with green beans. You can also omit the cauliflower and use shrimp or chicken, if you want to make this recipe, but like your meat!

And a note about the spice here – you can always add more chili powder to give this more spice. Whether you like a spicy curry or not, I know you’re going to love this one!

I think you have a typo -- the "knob of garlic" is probably a knob of ginger, I'm guessing? Also, I really miss the ability to see your recipes/blog posts in order of date. Unless I'm missing it, in the newer format, if you miss some blog posts, you'll never know it, because you can't go back day by day until you find where you left off reading. I really miss that a lot!

Yes, just simply go to!

Thank you for your feedback!! We appreciate it!

As the previous poster mentioned, the recipes on the blog have gotten sloppy lately. This is basically the same curry posted in early March, just subbing potatoes for chickpeas and peas for spinach. Also, the number of servings and the nutritional information isn’t listed. If it’s too much for you to publish quality new content during the quarantine, consider re-shooting and posting some of your older recipes. That’s what a lot of other bloggers are doing. I’d much rather be reminded of an old recipe that was actually tested and had a quality post attached with decent photographs than something that was thrown together and isn’t that healthy. The lite coconut milk alone in this recipe is ~640 calories, or 160 calories per serving (assuming those serves 4).

my 2020 holiday gift guide is finally live on the blog! 🎁 you’ll find my picks For Her (like this cute velvet puffer!), For Him, For Toddlers, and Under $50. but let me leave this disclaimer here: it’s the thought that counts. gift giving is supposed to spread joy - don’t get caught up searching the internet for hours for the “perfect gift.” the perfect gift is simply something thoughtful 💓 and frankly, our good health is the best gift we could all ask for this year 🖤 but if you need some more inspiration, check out my stories for swipe ups or go straight to! 😘 #holidaygiftideas #holidaygiftguide ...

a festive seasonal snack or dessert idea for you and your little ones 🍎 - these french toast apple slices were inspired by my grandmother and this apple butter, cinnamon, maple syrup toast situation she used to make with her famous applesauce. you can grab this recipe from #inspiralizedandbeyond! ⁣

tell me how everyone's doing on their thanksgiving prep - ready? haven't even started yet? I haven't bought a single thing yet! 😇😱🤡

the holidays are going to be very tough and emotional for many of us this year. we're not going to spend it with the loved ones we typically do to keep one another safe and even worse, some of us will miss family we've lost to the COVID virus. 💔⁣

something that always cheers me up is food. I've come to realize that one of the reasons it has this therapeutic effect on me is because it's a safe space for me to block out everything else and just enjoy the art of cooking. 🥄⁣

and I realize that this will not be helpful to everyone ("oh, ali, I can't just cook it all way!"), but if it does, try to get in the kitchen and cook (or bake!) something that brings you happiness. and if it does not and you're sad right now, that's okay too. it's okay to not feel okay. 🙏🏼 I wish I could help more, but in the meantime, my love, strength, and heart goes out to you. I'm thinking of you.⁣

but, IF food and cooking is cathartic for you too, I encourage you to make something new this year for Thanksgiving (or over whatever holiday you celebrate.) sometimes following steps in a new recipe keeps your brain focused on the task and you're able to let everything else wash away. at least that's how it is for me! I'm flipping through my cookbooks and sharing some of my favorite holiday-friendly recipes over on stories, like this one from #InspiralizedandBeyond! 📚⁣


makes 8-10 crostini⁣

1 large golden beet (about 6 ounces), peeled and sliced into 1/8" thick rounds⁣
1/4 cup ricotta cheese⁣
5 fresh figs, diced⁣
honey, for drizzling⁣

arrange the beet slices on a serving platter and spread about 1 teaspoon of the ricotta on each. top evenly with the chopped figs and drizzle very lightly with honey. serve.
