Course: Dinner
Prep Time:

• 2 tbsp. curry powder (turmeric, cumin, cinnamon, ginger)
• 3 medium-sized yellow potatoes
• 1 medium head cauliflower
• ½ jar marinara sauce
• Green onion (garnish)
• Pink Himalayan salt or sea salt to taste
• Pepper to taste
• Garlic powder to taste


 1  Cut up potatoes (with skin if organic) into small pieces. Put in pot and fill with water until potato pieces are fully covered. Bring to a boil. Stir occasionally. It will take about 15 minutes for the potatoes to get really soft so you can mash them easily.

 2  Cut up cauliflower into medium-sized florets. Coat skillet with olive oil. Set to medium heat and add florets. Add in 1 tbsp. curry powder, other spices, and ¼ jar of pasta sauce. Stir often until cauliflower is tender. This takes up to 15 minutes. If you cover with a lid, then lower the heat to medium-low.

 3  Take pot with potatoes off of the burner and spill out most of water. Keep a small amount in, so your mashed potatoes don’t turn out dry.

 4  Use a masher or fork to mash the potatoes. Add in 1 tbsp. curry powder and other spices until creamy. Add water as needed.

 5  Be sure to check your cauliflower and put it on a plate, so it doesn’t overcook. Put the other fourth of the marinara sauce in that same skillet and heat it.

 6  Serve curried cauliflower with a side of curried mashed potatoes and the marinara sauce as “gravy” for both. Cut up green onion and garnish.

    • It’s one of our favorite food combinations, ever! Cauliflower is incredibly good when it’s curried. I was shocked when I saw other colors of cauliflower at the whole foods store… It seemed fake to me. The purple one is especially pretty. 🙂 Lol.

      Thanks for the comment!

  1. My own health food shops don’t stock other colours of cauliflower! Seems I have to do some searching. Shame shops are so limited there’s all kinds of different varieties of fruits and veg of different colours, carrots are one that comes to mind.
    Btw keep the great recipes coming :). Apart from a small amount of milk I have in tea my diet’s completely vegan. So glad you have some great vegan/vegetarian recipes :D!

    • It’s not very common over here either, but in the event that they do have a multi-colored selection, we make sure to grab a head or two.

      Thank you! 🙂 I’m glad you like our recipes. We’ll definitely be posting more of them in the future.
