Cauliflower Curry, and Roast Apples and Parsnips for Passover

March 30, 2010

Now that we have that heavenly-smelling jar of freshly-ground curry spices, we feel compelled to use them.  As Nick pointed out, “fresh spices don’t stay fresh forever.”  Also, it turns out that curry is a great way to jazz up the occasionally boring selection of end-of-winter vegetables.  Nick actually whipped this up in about half an hour – he sautéed cauliflower, leeks, carrots, and potatoes with the curry spices and some turmeric, added a little water and some frozen peas, then covered and let it steam for a bit to cook through.  Meanwhile, a pot of cumin rice was on the other burner.  We ate this twice this week, once with crumbled Polish cheese (similar to pressed cottage cheese or queso fresco), and once without.  It was delicious both ways.

Another vegetable curry

Before I saw the cauliflower, and how small it was, I had half a mind to gratin it up in a mustardy béchamel sauce, but then I was informed that flour simply would not do for a Passover Seder.  So I went to the market and found some gorgeous parsnips.  I roasted them with the apples, and they were a hit.

    I would actually happily trade in all the upcoming gelato in my week for a bowl of this. Last night, when I was trying to get to sleep, I swear I heard my arteries ask me for lentils and broccoli. I think this would placate the boor blighters.

    Or poor blighters. Though they were being boors, too.

    Hannah – I’ll take that trade! (Although I do like the nice healthy feeling I get from eating a bowl of vegetables.)
