Vegan Indian Cauliflower With Tomatoes & Peas: Easy, Freezes Well, Healthy

I can't remember whether I saw the recipe for Cauliflower with Indian Spices by The Masala Girl on twitter or pinterest, but I printed it out immediately and knew I'd be making it soon. I love cauliflower. I love Indian food. I love tomatoes.

I also, as you know, love making changes to existing recipes and putting my own spin on them.

In this particular recipe, I increased the amount of tomatoes, added fresh ginger and peas (defrosted), and played around with spices. I ended up creating a great vegan side dish that freezes well and is satisfying, pretty, and good for you!
