Mmmmmmmm.....curry. I've fallen in love with the spice.  It's tasty, aromatic, and it even has a beautiful color.  I'm sure pretty much anything curried would be delicious.  Today it's all about cauliflower and sweet potato curry.

This cauliflower and sweet potato curry happens to be vegan.

Last month, my mom decided to give "going vegan" a try.  She's been pretty good about sticking to it.  My parents only live about 20 minutes away from me, so we eat dinner together often.  Usually, dinner consists of steak.  We are definitely carnivores in this family, so it's been quite an adjustment cutting back on meat.

With the hardiness of the cauliflower, sweet potato, and chickpeas in the curry, no one even missed the meat.  In fact, my dad was surprised to hear that the curry was vegan.

I wish you could have smelled the kitchen as I was making cauliflower and sweet potato curry.  It smelled good as I sauteed onions, ginger, garlic, jalapeño, and curry together.  After I  added the coconut milk and other ingredients it smelled even more amazing.

I really started to use curry after my mom and I saw The Hundred-Foot Journey. Out of all of the food movies I've seen, that one is my favorite, and it made me want to get into more exotic spices.  I just signed up for the RawSpiceBar subscription and can't wait to cook with spices that are new to me.

Anyhoo, curry is one of those recipes where it actually tastes better the next day.  So..... make sure to prepare extra for a delicious lunch too:)
