Recipe

This fragrant, Indian-inspired, side dish is simple and delicious. Try using orange cauliflower when making this recipe; it tastes the same as white and it looks beautiful with the black mustard seeds.

Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 head white or orange cauliflower, cut into small florets
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • ½ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 tablespoon vegan butter
  • 1 tablespoon black mustard seeds
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro, optional

Directions

1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring frequently, until golden. Add the cauliflower, coriander, turmeric, and salt and pepper to taste. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the water and simmer until the cauliflower is tender and most of the water is absorbed, 3 to 5 minutes.

2. In a small skillet over medium-high heat, melt butter with the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add the mustard seeds and cook for 2 minutes.

3. To serve, transfer the cauliflower to a serving platter, drizzle with the mustard seed mixture and sprinkle with cilantro, if using. Serve hot.
