Curried Whole Cauliflower

Whoa was this an easy crowd pleaser at our house!  This veggie is sure to become a mainstay in our heavy rotation meals.  The recipe comes from the April 2012 issue of Eating Well.

What you need:
1 large head cauliflower
1/2 cup mayo
2 tablespoons curry paste

What you do:

1. Remove leaves and trim woody core from cauliflower head. Place entire head in a microwave-safe bowl large enough to hold it.

2. Mix mayo with curry.  I used curry and garam masala, not curry paste.  I usually buy my curry (but as you see, this curry is World Market brand) and garam masalas at ethnic grocery stores, not the regular grocery stores.  They are tastier and more reasonably priced.  

3.  Cover the bowl with a microwave-safe plate.  Microwave on high until tender 6 to 9 minutes.  Let stand 2 more minutes, still covered.  Break into serving sizes.

We made a simple meal of curried cauliflower and veggie burgers on thin buns.  We even sliced tomatoes from our own garden.  
Look at that beauty!
