Cauliflower and Tomato Coconut Curry
This curry is pretty delicious. I love all things cauliflower these days, and they soak up the coconut curry sauce, flavored with garam masala, perfectly. Then there are chickpeas to keep you full, sweet potatoes, spinach, and tomatoes. Serve this colorful dish over rice, and you've got a wildly amazing little Indian dinner. I made it last week and have been taking the leftovers to work; they reheat beautifully.

from A Couple Cooks
1 yellow onion, diced
1 pound sweet potato (4 cupped peeled and chopped)
1 head cauliflower (5 cups chopped)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
2 tablespoons curry powder
1 tablespoon garam masala
1 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
23-ounce jar of diced plum tomatoes (I just used most of a 28-ounce can of regular diced tomatoes)
15-ounce can full fat coconut milk
15-ounce can chickpeas
4 cups spinach leaves
1) Prepare the brown rice according to the package instructions.
2) Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and saute 2 minutes, then add the sweet potato and saute 3 minutes. Add cauliflower and 1/2 teaspoon salt, and saute for another 5 minutes. Stir in curry powder, garam masala, cumin, and cayenne. Add the tomatoes and coconut milk. bring to a boil, then cover, reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes until the cauliflower and sweet potato are tender.
3) Drain and rinse the chickpeas. When the vegetables are tender, add the chickpeas and spinach and stir for 2 minutes until the spinach is wilted. Add the other 1/2 teaspoon salt to taste.
4) Garnish with cilantro and serve with brown rice.
