Cauliflower Quinoa Curry

Cauliflower Quinoa Curry

Serves 4

1 head cauliflower, roughly chopped
2 carrots, sliced into rounds
1 c mushrooms, sliced
2 tomatoes, roughly chopped
1/2 yellow onion, cut into chunks
1/2 block extra firm tofu, cut into thin squares
1 c uncooked quinoa
2 c coconut milk
2 c water
1 tbs olive oil
5 heaping tbs curry powder
1 tsp paprika
1 tbs cumin
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp cayenne (optional). if you have a mild curry powder, you might want to add this

Place quinoa, cauliflower, carrots, onions, spices, salt, pepper, coconut milk and water in a large pot and bring to a boil.
Once boiling, turn down heat to a simmer and cover.
Meanwhile, saute the mushrooms and tofu in olive oil over medium heat until tofu is slightly browned.
Keep checking the cauliflower with a fork to see if it is soft.
When Cauliflower is soft, stir in tomatoes, mushrooms and tofu.
Turn off the heat and keep covered for about 5 minutes. This will allow the tomatoes to heat through and soften.

Grab a fork and enjoy the warming sensation this dish will create throughout your entire body.

I hope you enjoy! If you give it a go, let me know how it goes!
