This dish is so simple, so quick, and so flavorful…this may just turn out to be one of your favorites. I know you might be thinking about the fat content in this dish, but sometimes, a little healthy fat from nuts or coconut is nourishing and supportive to your health.
In this dish, the almond butter gives the cauliflower its richness, and together with the curry, just makes a delicious coating to the cauliflower, making this such a satisfying dish to enjoy.
And, cauliflower roasts so quick in the oven. If you don't like curry, you can add just salt and pepper or a little of any spice that hits your fancy. How about smoky paprika?
This dish offers lots of fiber, protein from the nut butter, vitamins and minerals from the green peas. Did you know that peas offer a higher dose of vitamin C than citrus, daily dose of zinc, which is an important antioxidant mineral that is essential for wound healing, B vitamins, magnesium and phosphorus which is important for proper health and maintenance of your blood, muscle, bone health, as well as your nervous system.
Cauliflower is one of those dynamic, vitamin, mineral and fiber-rich cruciferous veggies that offers anti-cancerous, anti-inflammatory, hormone balancing, weight loss support, eye health, and aids in detoxification. This amazing veggie can be cooked in a myriad of ways. You can simply roast it, as we did in this recipe, throw it in soups, stews, and stir-fries, mashing it to mimic mashed potatoes, and now….the new craze is turning it into “rice”. If you are interested in getting a bit creative, you are welcome to chop your cauliflower in the food processor to turn it into a “curried fried rice” dish.
