Curry Spiced Cauliflower And Potatoes

The cauliflower I bought at the winter farmer's market was literally the size of my head, so I knew I had to use it as the star in some dish.

Among cauliflower's benefits is that it is low in fat and carbs but high in dietary fiber, foliate, water and vitamin C.

I’ve never been a huge fan of cooked cauliflower, but when I saw a huge head for sale at the winter farmer’s market, I knew I had to go for it. This particular cauliflower was literally the size of my head, so I knew I had to use it as the star in some dish.

Sometimes I steam cauliflower and mash it up like potatoes, but I wanted to try something different this time, and it was a total hit! Did I mention super easy? Well it is!

Plus, cauliflower is really good for you – it’s low in fat and carbs but high in dietary fiber, foliate, water and vitamin C.
