Cauliflower in Kale Coconut Curry

Cauliflower in Kale Coconut Curry

I don’t cook cauliflower that often because of its bland flavor and colorless texture. This vegetable even though high in nutrition, I feel isn’t as palatable and exciting as other vegetables. My family definitely can go to any extent to avoid it. But in the process of cooking cauliflower to make it taste friendly I learnt that if this vegetable was seasoned very well and cooked properly can be liked as much as other vegetables.

I came up with a medley of flavors with a variety of different ingredients for this recipe, to make cauliflower as appealing as possible. Cauliflower in Kale Coconut Curry has the flavor of spices, coconut, nutrient rich kale leaves, and of course cauliflower florets.

I roasted the cauliflower florets as my first step to cook very well and enhance its texture and savoriness. For the paste I blended onion, kale and coconut which allowed me to bring out the aroma and flavor of coconut prominently. Spiced the paste with a variety of seasonings and lastly added lightened coconut milk to it. When I took the first bite of this Cauliflower in Kale Coconut Curry I was simply amazed at its taste and couldn’t believe that cauliflower could be turned into such a delicious entrée.

I served this entrée with cumin pilaf and some homemade paratha to my family on a cold working night and it was happily devoured by everyone.

This is my regular entree recipe for working nights from now on and it takes only about 30 minutes to be ready and served. It is not impossible to feed nutritious food to our families, sometimes it might take a little while to suit to our taste requirement, but if we focus a liiittllleee on what and how we cook we can serve delicious and healthy food and yet see smiling faces of our loved ones all day long :)
