  • 1 tbsp red curry paste
  • 1 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/2 head cauliflower cut into small florets

  • Prepare the rice per the package instructions. Set aside when done.
  • While the rice is cooking, heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the diced onions and sauté until translucent. Add the garlic and sautéed for another minute.
  • Add the turmeric, red curry paste and salt. Stir to combine the seasonings. Cook until fragrant (about 1 minute).

  • Add the coconut milk. Stir until combined. Add additional salt if needed.
  • Serve over jasmine rice. Add some chopped parsley or cilantro if desired. Enjoy!


Make sure the red curry paste is vegan friendly. Some curry pastes have fish sauce in the ingredients. 
I prefer the potatoes with the skin on in this dish, but you can peel you potatoes if desired.
