Curried Cauliflower & Chickpeas

*curried cauliflower and chickpeas

CURRIED CAULIFLOWER & CHICKPEAS 

1 small onion, minced (I used the greens as well)

1  tomato, small dice

1 small head of cauliflower, cut into slightly larger than bite size pieces

1 1/2c cooked chickpeas

3T Extra Virgin Olive oil

1/4t turmeric

1” piece of fresh ginger, minced

1T green curry paste

1T curry powder

1/4t cayenne pepper or 1 small chili pepper

1/4c fresh cilantro, coarsely chopped

2T fresh parsley

salt and pepper to taste

1/4c water

In a large saucepot, heat up the oil, add the onions and sauté until just golden. Add in the ginger, curry paste and tomatoes and stir in well. When the tomatoes have broken down, add the chickpeas and the water and bring to a boil. Add in the cauliflower and cover the pot, allowing the cauliflower to steam until tender- about 8-10 minutes. When ready, with a large spoon, gently stir the cauliflower into the chickpea mixture in the pot and add in the fresh cilantro. Serve immediately with white or brown basmati rice.
