Curried Cauliflower with Spinach & ChickPeas

We eat a fair amount of curry and chick peas in our house. Now I’m not talking all the time but everyone will eat it which is a big success when you have two little kids and a vegan. One of our other favourites is Curried Cauliflower & Chickpeas with Coconut Milk that I shared back in August and wanted to share this one today!

It’s so easy to make and doesn’t require a lot of prep time. Though you need to make sure you have all the ingredients (as with any recipe). Yesterday, I had to run to the store – literally – to pick up an onion. I wasn’t to upset as I wanted to get my first post half marathon run in and my hamstring was feeling good.

I got the recipe from my mother a few years ago. She found it in a magazine and thought my husband would like it since it was vegan. She’s always trying new vegan recipes for him and follows all the directions 100%, me not so much 😉

Curried Cauliflower with Spinacn and chickpeas PR

Curried Cauliflower, Chick Peas and Spinach. 

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 sweet onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp minced fresh ginger (yum)
  • 2 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced (I always put way more 3-5 cloves)
  • 2 tsp garam masala
  • 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper
  • 1 small head of cauliflower
  • 1 can (19oz/540ml) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 4 cups of baby spinach
  • Rice or quinoa or other grain.

Directions:

1. In frying pan heat oil and cook onion and sugar, stiring occasionally until beginning to brown.

2. Add ginger, garlic, garam masala, vinegar, cayenne, salt and pepper; reduce heat to medium-low and cook until onion is golden brown.

3. Cut cauliflower into florets to make 6 cups (I never measure this). Add to pan along with chickpeas and raisins; cover and cook, stirring once or twice until cauliflower is tender (about 18 minutes).

4. Remove from heat and stir in spinach. ( I don’t remove it from the heat when I put in the spinach).

5. Surve over rice of your choice.

Our girls actually eat this!!!!!!! I find this one really good after a day as the flavour is that much stronger. What’s even better – apparently I’ve shared this recipe on my blog before, whoops! Oh well, I took the time to write this up so I’m going to hit publish anyway. Enjoy 🙂

Do you find curry better the day you make it or a day later ?

Ever run (or walk) to the store for an ingredient you forgot?

Ever shared a recipe twice on your blog? Or something else?
