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
  • 1/2 Cup honey
  • 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.

Cauliflower Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age and damage.

Cauliflower Cooking Tip

Vegetables should typically be cooked as quickly as possible, as they can become bland and mushy, and lose vitamins and minerals.
