Cauliflower Curry- Frugal Friday


I think you either love it or hate it. Is there a middle ground with this much loved/hated vegetable? If you hate it, find something else to substitute it. If you love it…well tuck in please.

Cauliflower Curry

a good slurp of vegetable oil

then add

1 chopped spring garlic

a diced onion

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp coriander

 1 tsp turmeric

1/2 tsp cinnamon

 salt to taste

fry until smells delicious and then add

 1 whole roughly chopped cauliflower

5 small chopped length ways zucchini

2 cups water

cook until the vegetables are just cooked through, (you don’t want them mushy and disintegrated)

then add

200mls coconut milk

serve with some roasted cashews on top

Cashew Chia Date Roll

My local deli has these lovely dried fruit rolls that cost a whole bunch, look lovely and don’t have a whole lots of ingredients in them. So I decided to see if I could do a version. An easy snack, or pre-dinner nibble with some cheese.

Cashew Chia Date Roll

2 tbls chia

1 tbls water

100g raw cashews

150g dried dates

Combine the chia and water together , leave for 5 minutes to soak in. Blitz all ingredients up in a small hand held blender. (This was a bit of a pain as it kept sticking, but keep at it.)

Scoop the mixture on to some cling film and then roll it into a log shape. Store in the fridge, and slice as needed.
