Super Green Cauliflower Rice and Pea Curry

I’m pretty excited about this recipe.. Firstly because it contains so many of my favourite curry ingredients ie cauliflower (I always have gobi something at Indian restaurants), sweet peas and spinach.
This is one to the quickest and simplest curries to make, I find that making a paste speeds things up and really enhances the flavour. Its as simple as throwing all the ingredients into a blender and pulsing for a couple of minutes. In this one I add in 4 big cups of spinach and a whole bunch of coriander including the stalks for tons of flavour.

I love the gorgeous green colour from the spinach and peas and you’re getting some great nutrients from the iron in the spinach, protein rich peas and the high levels of vitamin C in cauliflower. And it’s tastes delicious!
I would either eat this on its own or with some of my favourite buckwheat flatbreads.

    I love cauliflower rice and have enjoyed experimenting with it in different ways. This looks like a really flavorful combination – I’m excited to try. Not to mention the gorgeous color – it makes me excited for spring! I’ve never heard of asafoetida – what is that?

    • Niki on February 2, 2016 at 3:45 pm

      Thank you so much Jessica!
      I love the green colour too. Asafoetida is an Indian Spice which adds some extra zing (but this recipe will work perfectly without it)
      Best wishes
