A Healthy Twist on a Traditional Thai Dish

Cauliflower can be used as a healthy substitute in many traditional dishes. You can mash it down for a unique pizza crust or fluff it into a substitute for mashed potatoes. But, here, we mix the magnificent cauliflower with a mild yellow curry sauce for an authentic flavor in a guiltless entree.

Cauliflower Curry

Ingredients
Makes 4 Servings | Total Time: 1 Hour

Currycauliflower-curry
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 onion, diced
3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
3 tablespoons yellow curry paste
One 14oz can coconut milk
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Shallots
¼ cup olive oil
1 large shallot, thinly sliced
Garnish
1 bunch scallions, thinly sliced
½ cup chopped fresh cilantro

Directions

  1. Make the Curry: In a large pot, heat the coconut oil over medium heat. Add the onion and saute until tender, 5 to 6 minutes. Add the garlic and saute until fragrant, 1 minute more.
  2. Add the cauliflower and saute until it starts to become tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the curry paste and coconut milk, stirring to combine. Bring the mixture to a simmer and season to taste with salt and pepper. Simmer until the sauce reduces slightly and the cauliflower is very tender; 8 to 10 minutes.
  3. While the cauliflower cooks, make the crispy shallots: In a small pot, heat the oil over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the shallot and cook until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from the oil and drain on paper towels.
  4. To serve, ladle the cauliflower into bowls and garnish with crispy shallots, scallions and cilantro.
  5. Indulge in your homemade, healthy Thai dinner!
