Jamaican Vegan Cauliflower Curry

This Jamaican Vegan Cauliflower Curry is not just a meal; it’s a culinary journey to the vibrant streets of Jamaica.

Hey there, foodie friends! Today, I’m bringing you a recipe that’s close to my heart and taste buds – a delicious Vegan Cauliflower Curry that’s not just perfect for meatless dinners but also fits right in with the spirit of Daniel Fast. And guess what? It’s inspired by the vibrant and spicy flavors of Jamaica – the place where I was born!

Ingredients:

  • 1 head of cauliflower, chopped into florets
  • 1 can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can of coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup of vegetable broth
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 orange bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 tbsp garlic, minced
  • 1 carrot, chopped
  • 1 white potato, diced
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 1 tbsp of Jamaican curry powder
  • 1 sprig fresh thyme
  • 1 tsp ground allspice
  • 1 tsp Adobo seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • A dash of olive oil for sautéing

Instructions:

  1. Sauté the Aromatics: In a large pot, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion, minced garlic, tomato and bell pepper. Sauté until the vegetables are translucent and the kitchen is filled with the incredible aroma.
  2. Add the Jamaican Flare: Stir in the Jamaican curry powder and thyme. Let the spices toast for a minute, releasing their flavors and adding that authentic Jamaican touch.
  3. Creamy Coconut Connection: Pour in the coconut milk and vegetable broth. Bring the pot to a gentle simmer
  4. Add the cauliflower, potatoes, carrots, and chickpea, mix well to combine
  5. Season to Perfection: Season your curry with salt and pepper as well as adobo, smoked paprika and all spice. Give it a good stir and let it simmer for a few more minutes to let all the flavors meld together and the vegetables are fork tender
  6. Serve and Enjoy: Ladle the Jamaican-inspired Vegan Cauliflower Curry into bowls and serve it over a bed of fluffy rice or quinoa. Garnish with fresh cilantro for that final burst of flavor and color.
Yield: 4 servings
