Everyone loves pasta right – easy, reliable, well-respected, near universally regarded – basically, a classic! That said, I am one of the few that don’t like pasta that much. I know, I know! Blasphemy! That just means I like to spice up pasta in some non-traditional ways, seeing as the traditional way isn’t really that exciting to me. And hey even for the most ardent pasta fans, it’s always great to mix things up in the kitchen. Enter spiced curry cauliflower! It’s crunchy, it’s hearty and filling – and most importantly, it just tastes good.
Sure, it makes no sense from a cultural standpoint. But taste wise, what’s not to love! So all you do is get some cauliflower, give it a little bit of oil, dredge it through a curry powder/bread crumb mix and roast it in the over until it’s looking crispy and golden all over, which shouldn’t take long. And there you have it – fast, easy, goes great with pasta. Astound your friends and family with how multicultural and diverse your palette is, smashing Italian and Indian cuisines together like it wasn’t a big deal at all. Go you! I even went a bit further and added some hummus – remember, we’re thinking about flavour combinations here! Anyway, we liked it and the whole thing had a very savoury, hearty feel, so give it a try and let us know what you think!
