Ingredients

  • 1 head cauliflower, stemmed and broken into florets
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 yellow onion, cut into large pieces
  • One 28-ounce can crushed whole tomatoes

  • 1 Teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 Teaspoon curry powder
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 Cup shredded Gruyère cheese (optional)

Directions

Steam cauliflower florets until slightly underdone (they will cook more in the oven). Set aside.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8-by-8-inch baking dish.

In a large, deep pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic and cook unti fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add onion and cook until translucent, about 7 minutes. Add tomatoes and stir to combine. Add honey, cinnamon, curry powder, and salt and pepper and stir to combine. Cook until heated through, about 5 minutes. 

Add cauliflower to baking dish and top with tomato mixture. If using, top with cheese. Bake in oven for about 20 minutes. Remove and serve immediately.
