Life is busy and I don’t always have a lot of time to get dinner on the table, but I want to still eat something healthy that tastes good. One-pot dinners like this cauliflower curry are here for you! One-Pot Cauliflower Curry -This healthy one-pot cauliflower curry takes only 30 minutes to cook, making it the perfect dish for busy weeknights. All you need to recreate it is a handful of simple ingredients, half of which you probably already have in your pantry. If you don’t have a large, deep skillet, I would use a saucepan or Dutch oven to whip up this curry. Serve this tasty curry over your choice of grain or rice to round out the meal.
