Roasted Curry Cauliflower Soup

Roasting the cauliflower for this soup helps provide great depth of flavor and a bit of sweetness.  The curry powder provides a nice steady spice.  This soup is not super spicy, but the curry powder offers a nice warm heat to add more flavor to the soup.

Here’s another dish from 660 Curries.  The dish in the cookbook calls for using cauliflower, which sounds delicious as well.  It is a bit of a rich dish, with the coconut and the cashew.  Serve on a bed of rice and this dish is sure to be a crowd pleaser.

Cauliflower with Garlic Anchovy Sauce

Adapted from How to Cook Everything by Mark Bittman

Here’s a great quick and flavorful dish that can be used as a vegetable side, as a pasta sauce, or a sauce for pork or chicken.  I like serving this with a side of cooked greens and crusty bread.  It would also be great served with cooked cannellini beans.  Yes, this dish has anchovies, but give them a try.  Yes, the smell is strong when you first open them, but they melt into the olive oil and add a ton of flavor to the dish.  The key is to buy good quality anchovies.

Cauliflower Steak-Roasted

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, roasting caramelizes vegetables and brings out the natural sweetness.  Here’s a variation using the same cooking technique, but different prepping technique, I discovered it in Alice Water’s cookbook The Art of Simple Food.  A whole head of cauliflower is cut in slices from top to bottom to form cauliflower steaks.  It’s a more elegant way to serve roasted cauliflower and it’s delicious.  I could not stop eating it.  Try serving a couple of cauliflower steaks per person, with quinoa and braised kale or chard to make a complete dinner.
