Warm Curried Cauliflower & Grains
It’s hard to motivate to cook for one. Tristan and I have been ships passing in the night with insane work schedules for weeks, and the nights I’m home hours before him, I find myself reaching for the take out menus or a can of hobo beans. It’s sad, but these days, appreciative mouths are much more fun to bring out the pots and pans for!
But, my college friend had posted something on her addictive food blog that looked amazing, simple and healthy and I’ve been dying to give it a spin:
Who doesn’t like cauliflower these days?! Especially when it’s curry-roasted with crispy chickpeas… and mixed up with a grainy potpourri of quinoa, mini garbanzos, orzo and Israeli style couscous?
I followed her recipe almost religiously… (even hunted my local Trader Joe’s for the mixed grain mix!). But I swapped out the pine nuts for golden raisins (be sure to soak them in hot water for 10 mins prior to adding them in so they don’t suck all the moisture out of the final dish!)
Try it on yourself. For one. It’s so worth it. Plus you’ll get many PERFECT lunches to bring to work to the envy of your coworkers. Yum!!
