Cauliflower Curry direct from the Paleo Pantry

Well, I’m still working my way through my enormous cache of 98c cauliflowers and here is my latest creation – Cauliflower Curry. Although, I must admit I made it pretty mild so my kidlets would eat it up so perhaps I should call it ‘Cauliflower in a Savoury Coconut and Tomato Sauce’. Mild though it was, it was really, really tasty and the kids (a 2 and a 4 year old ) ate the whole lot which actually surprised me a little bit, there was a teensy amount of chilli in it after all!

I really do love one pot dishes. This one was particularly great as the only chopping involved the cauliflower and an onion. Everything else came from a spice jar, a can or the freezer – pretty easy indeed! Next time I might use actual garlic cloves and fresh ginger and chilli but this is what I was able to rummage up in the ‘paleo pantry’ and somehow it came together quite nicely 🙂 I also think some freshly chopped coriander at the end would really lift the dish – I didn’t have any and it was still fine.
