Dinner Tonight: Curried Sautéed Cauliflower

It’s only been about a year since I started eating cauliflower on a semi-regular basis, and probably only in the past three months when I’ve out-right craved it. And there I was in Whole Foods, dipping the big spoon into a mound of curried cauliflower because I really needed it. As I popped each bit into my mouth, I knew I’d have to recreate this dish. And that night, nary five hours after I had just eaten cauliflower, I was out for some more.

Unlike my last foray into Whole Foods mimicry, the recipe was not conveniently online, meaning I’d have to figure it out myself. The only results when googled were cauliflower curry—which is awfully delicious but far from the one I had inhaled at the food court. I thought I was going to have to get a little experimental with my nice white head of cauliflower before stumbling upon a Mark Bittman recipe that was rather similar. I stole a few things (the cilantro, especially) and winged the rest. A tad different, but utterly delicious nonetheless.
