    Recently, my pals at Pure Indian Foods sent me some of their new spices to try, and the bottle of Organic Vindaloo Curry Seasoning really stood out in my mind. I’ve also got a few plans for the Organic Tandoori Masala Seasoning coming up soon!

    I rummaged around the fridgeโ€”as one often does when trying to make dinnerโ€”and found a head of cauliflower, an onion and some leftover roasted sweet potato to put together.

    Diced tomatoes, chicken broth and full-fat coconut milk rounded out the pantry goods. (I always have those on hand so recipes like this can happen in a flash.)

    The result was tender cauliflower perfectly seasoned with the warm spices from the curry, a touch of sweet from the potato, a little acid from the tomatoes, and creaminess from the coconut.

    This dish feeds four as a side (or as a main for vegetarian friends if you use veggie stock instead of chicken), but if you toss in some cooked diced chicken or canned wild salmon, you’ve got a hearty and satisfying meal that takes one pot from start to finish.

    1. Steph, this looks amazing! I happen to have a head of cauliflower chilling in my fridge right now, so I’m making this tonight!! I can’t wait ๐Ÿ™‚

      Also, if i don’t have curry vindaloo, do you think subbing curry powder with cayenne would do?

      Thanks!

    2. Delicious recipe! I didn’t have the vindaloo curry (yet) so I made this with one of the masalas I had in my pantry, and I used frozen cauliflower. Everyone loved it. Will definitely make again.

    3. I made this for the first time today, and I will definitely be making it again! My husband (who doesn’t normally like curry, but will try any recipe I put in front of him at least once) even said he would eat it again. WIN!

    4. Thank you for this receptive, I made it 10 days ago and I am making it again today! I rarely make the same thing twice in one month unless I love it!

    5. This is our new favorite recipe! My husband said this is something he would would order at a restaurant and my daughter (who “doesn’t like cauliflower”) asked for seconds!

    6. Gorgeous recipe! It came out perfect even when I adjusted to seasoning to omit vindaloo for milder curry. My SO can’t handle the heat. It was a breeze to make and I will certainly want to experiment with variations. Thank you for such an awesome site! You’ve become my go-to!

    7. Thanks for the recipe. Was looking for something different to do with the sweet potato I had on hand. Had to make a few changes because I didn’t have some things: used curry powder and frozen cauliflower/broccoli blend (partially thawed it), and no coconut milk. Still loved it and the house smelled great!
