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, cauliflower, sweet peas and spinach.

This is one of the quickest and simplest curries to make. Making a paste speeds things up and really enhances the flavour.

It’s 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 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 tastes delicious!

I would either eat this on its own or with some of my favourite buckwheat flatbreads.

I hope you love this curry, happy days! Love, Niki xx

I'd love to hear your comments…

    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?

    • 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
