Curried Cauliflower and Spinach

Total Time

This is good and very pretty. The cauliflower turns a lovely yellow color. Be generous with the spices and use lots of garlic! Don’t use frozen spinach for this one. This recipe is meant to be served as a side dish or as one of many dishes in the typical Indian style.

DH an I had this for dinner and we loved it. Made it exactly as written and then at the table, sprinkled a little Parmesan cheese to experiment a bit. Yum! Can hardly wait til the next time! Thank you for posting!

I enjoyed this very much. It's a fantastic meatless dish. The cauliflower was just the right tenderness. I waited until the last 7-8 minutes to add the spinach, so it wouldn't be too mushy. I only used 12 oz of fresh spinach and I tought that was plenty. I added 1 tsp of curry powder (since the title says "curried" but none was listed). Also, I cut the amount of oil in half to cut out some fat calories. I'll certainly make this again. Thanx for posting this easy veggie curry!
