  • 4 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 12 teaspoons green curry paste
  • ½ teaspoon cardamom

  1. Heat oil or water in large pot or dutch oven. Once heated, add the onions and garlic, and cook until fragrant and translucent. Be sure to add more water as needed to prevent burning.
  2. Add the spices and curry paste, and stir until well combined. Mix in the cauliflower and chickpeas, stirring for about 1 minute to heat through, then add the tomatoes and coconut milk.
  3. Bring mixture boil, then reduce heat to med-low and boil gently until the cauliflower is tender and the liquid thickens slightly, stirring occasionally (about 15-20 minutes).
  4. Add in the greens and cook through until wilted, stir in the cilantro then season with salt & pepper to taste.
  5. Serve warm with rice, quinoa and/or anything else of choice.
