Directions

  1. Heat vegetable oil in a large saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir onions and cauliflower until slightly softened, about 3 minutes. Add garlic, ginger, coriander, cumin, turmeric, and cayenne pepper; stir to coat.
  2. Stir tomatoes and vegetable broth into cauliflower mixture; season with salt and black pepper. Bring mixture to a boil, cover, and reduce heat. Simmer until flavors have blended, about 8 minutes. Stir spinach into mixture until it begins to wilt. Cover and simmer until spinach is completely wilted and cauliflower is tender, 8 to 10 minutes.

Simple tasty dish. I only used a few shakes of cayenne :) Recipe didn't state, so I drained the tomatoes and glad I did; all the broth left it a bit soupy, and I never did cover it. Next time I will use more of the other spices, less broth and perhaps a touch of sugar. DBF really liked this, but DS not so much. 4 servings might be understating, unless this is meant to be the main course; as a side, I would call it 6-8 servings. I served with homemade naan, yum!

Cut the cayenne way back, because my family doesn't like spicy food. Without it, though, we thought the recipe didn't have enough flavor. Doubling the remaining spices would probably make a big difference.

My family really liked this recipe. I like spicy food but decided to cut back on the cayenne. I'm glad I did. Even with 1t of cayenne it was spicy! The dish once finished is also very appealing to the eye with the yellow spices, red tomatoes and green spinach!

Delicious. I changed it slightly... replaced half of cauliflower with half a butternut squash, no cayennepepper, added 5 strips of bacon and three cubed potatoes, served hotsauce on side...everyone in family has different tolerance for heat...everyone loved it

I used 1/2 tsp of Cayenne and that was enough to let you know there is some heat in there. Definitely need to serve it with chicken or some kind of protein. I also used Walla Walla Sweet Onions that don't have a big bite to them.

Really good recipe! Thank you for sharing it! I will be making this over and over again. Great way to get vegetables into a meal and filling enough to forego adding a starch to the meal.

My husband's favorite vegetables. Though I usually substitute kale for spinach.
