I'm a huge fan of the spicy sweet combination in this dish!
First, start the rice in the rice cooker. For three cups of rice, mix:
1 can coconut milk
3 cups (provided with the rice cooker) dry long grain white rice
Enough water to fill to the appropriate line
and set to cook.
For the Curried Cauliflower:
Warm 1 T peanut oil in a large sautée pan over medium heat. Cook 1/2 cup diced onion and 2 cloves minced garlic until softened. Add 1/2 diced bell pepper, 2 roughly chopped tomatoes, and 1 head roughly chopped cauliflower. Add the spices: 1 T curry powder, 1 t. cinnamon, 1/4 t. cayenne (or more for added heat). Flip gently with a spatula until softened for a few minutes. As it cooks down, add 2/3 cup water, 1/4 cup raisins and 1 can of drained and rinsed garbanzo beans. Reduce heat to low and cook until warmed through.
Serve over rice. Serves 4 and takes about 30 minutes. Enjoy!
Hi, friends! It seems to me like it's time to add a new category to the blog: Lifestyle. Being vegan isn't just about amazing food - it's also about the way we live. So, it's high time you meet my beautiful friend and stylist, Barbara, who happens to be vegan.
Barbara and I met a few years back and she's been creating amazing hair for me ever since. She is such a trooper when I throw hair curve balls at her (not literally, thank goodness!) and ask her to try something new with my look. While she's down with bold color, she can also do cuts for my husband and boys without batting an eye.
It's not just about the talent, either. Barbara uses products that are not tested on animals and knows which are vegan.
It makes sense that when given the choice, we support each other in this community. If you're looking for a stylist who shares your ethics, go see her at Hairwaves at Banging Hair Studio. View her work on Instagram @thebarbarashopdenton. And check out all of the fanciness she's done with my hair:
