Ingredients
  

The Cauliflower:

  • 5-6 cups of cauliflower florets — I used a small head of cauliflower
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • salt and smoked paprika to taste⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The Sauce:

  • 1 tablespoon oil — avocado oil or olive oil
  • 1 small finely chopped onion
  • 3 minced garlic cloves
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon turmeric powder — I measure with my heart
  • cup tomato sauce marinara or passata
  • 4 tablespoons of the cream that sits on top of a can of coconut milk — add some of the coconut milk if you need to thin it out
  • 1 cup finely chopped spinach is optional
  • parsley or cilantro for garnish is optional

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 450F. Add the raw cauliflower florettes on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Drizzle on the oil, add salt and smoked paprika to taste.
  • With clean hands massage it really well and bake for 25 minutes or until roasted. In a pan on medium-high heat start sautéing the onion until translucent. This should take 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Add the garlic and sauté for another 30 seconds. You do not want anything to burn. Add the spices to taste and stir again. Add the tomato sauce, the cream that sits on top of a can of coconut milk and stir.
  • Let it simmer on low heat for 3-4 minutes. Add the roasted cauliflower and let it simmer for another 2-3 minutes. Optionally stir in some chopped spinach and take it off the heat. Garnish with parsley, cilantro, or even basil it’s totally up to you. Top it off on top of rice and enjoy

Notes

You will also need 2 cups of cooked Jasmine rice or any you enjoy. I used 1 cup of dry jasmine rice and boiled it with 1 3/4 cup water and some salt. Follow the package directions for the rice you want to make. If you don’t like coconut milk you are more than welcome to use anything else such as cream cheese or even sour cream. Cashew cream would be absolutely delicious in here as well. You can add cooked chicken or chickpeas for extra protein. Feel free to adjust on the spices or add your own. If you don’t like Turmeric you can substitute with chilli powder or even curry paste.
