Cauliflower Curry

A recipe!

Ooh it's been a long time!

And it's a crock-pot recipe? Ka-freakin'-pow!

In an effort to eat a little less meat, I'm working on adding some vegetarian dishes to our usual weekly menu.

This one was so easy and tasty, I thought I'd share.

2 heads cauliflower - cut into florets
1/2 large white onion, diced
2-3 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 cup water or stock
1/2 - 3/4 jar of green curry paste
1 can coconut milk
onion powder - a hefty sprinkle
garlic powder - a few large dashes
salt - a decent amount
pepper - several cranks

Add everything except the coconut milk to the crock pot and cook on high for 4 hours, or low for 8 hours. Stirring occasionally. 
Immediately prior to serving, add the coconut milk and stir until combined.
When the coconut milk has warmed up - serve!
I served over rice noodles (cook according to package directions), but rice would work just as well.
1/2 of the jar of curry paste yields a mild curry - so if you are looking for more heat - add 3/4 of the jar and taste - you can always add more curry paste at the end, once you've added the coconut milk.
You can also add curry powder, but don't substitute it for the curry paste - just add it in addition for additional flavor without heat.

Even my husband ate it.
But not the kids.
Cheerios for one and toast for the other.

Happy Thursday.
