Coconut Cauliflower


Here's a really simple dish, great for a fast lunch, or a quick dinner if you're not particularly hungry. It's satisfying, and a good way to get lots of veggies. The recipe comes from the Swedish cookbook "Köp Hem 5", and I think this particular recipe is written by Alice Brax who has an excellent food blog of her own.

Coconut Cauliflower
Serves 4

1 tsp oil
2 tsp curry
1 tsp cumin
4 tbsp coconut flakes
1 small head of cauliflower, in florets
400 ml (about 1.6 cups) cabbage, shredded

Fry curry, cumin and coconut in oil. Boil the cauilflower in salted water for 3-4 minutes, and the cabbage for just one minute. Drain, and add to the curry mixture, and fry for a few minutes. Serve with bulgur or rice, and a simple dressing with thick yogurt, cucumber, salt, garlic and fresh coriander.
