Coconut Curry Cauliflower Recipe

I’ve taken my love for coconut to a whole new level after learning how to crack one, when I was in Hawaii recently. I try to incorporate coconut into my health regime in a variety of ways. In my protein shakes, to cook my eggs, I even use it as a body moisturizer!

Here’s a recipe I love to make using homemade coconut milk.coconut curry

Coconut Curry Cauliflower

1/2 cup homemade coconut milk**
1 1/2 teaspoons (or more) curry spice blend
1 head of cauliflower, cut into pieces sea salt, to taste

  1. Preheat oven to 425
  2. Whisk together the coconut milk & spice in a bowl
  3. Place cauliflower into a baking dish
  4. Pour remaining milk over top & sprinkle with sea salt
  5. There should be a little milk at the bottom of the pan
  6. The cauliflower should not be swimming in it.
  7. Bake for 25 minutes or until cauliflower starts to brown

Serve hot & enjoy!
