Tikka Masala Cauliflower (Vegan & GF)


It’s a flavorful food kind of night. The aromas, tastes and textures of this dish do not disappoint.

Get all your ingredients out at once. I find that it makes cooking go much smoother.

Sauté the onions, garlic, ginger and cinnamon stick.

After it’s done cooking, purée them along with tomatoes, pepper, cilantro and coconut milk.

Add in the cauliflower and cook until tender. Serve with cilantro, rice and chickpeas. The recipe for the Chickpeas is HERE.
