Serves 4

1 large head cauliflower, broken into medium florets
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons curry powder
2 medium tomatoes, coarsely chopped
Salt, to taste
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
2 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro or parsley (for garnish)

1. Fit a large saucepan with a steamer insert and several inches of water. Bring to a boil. Add the cauliflower, cover the pan, and steam the cauliflower for 6 minutes or until it is not quite tender (it will cook more later).

2. With a slotted spoon, lift the cauliflower from the pan and transfer to a plate.

3. In a large skillet, heat the oil. When it is hot, add the curry and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Stir in the tomatoes, salt, red pepper, and water. Cook, stirring, for 3 minutes more.

4. Add the cauliflower and stir well until the florets are coated with the sauce. Cover the pan and continue cooking, stirring several times, for 3 minutes, or until the cauliflower is cooked through. Taste for seasoning, add more salt, if you like, and sprinkle with cilantro or parsley. Sheryl Julian
