Rich-tasting curry powder gives a small amount of cream big flavor. Chickpeas add fiber and protein.

  • 4 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 large head cauliflower, cored and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced small
  • 2 cups basmati or other long-grain white rice
  • 4 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1 can (15.5 ounces) chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 2 3/4 cups low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a Dutch oven or other heavy pot, heat 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high. Add cauliflower and cook, stirring frequently, until browned in spots. Transfer to a plate and season with salt and pepper. Add 2 teaspoons oil and onion to pot; cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is translucent, 5 minutes. Add rice, curry powder, and chickpeas and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, until rice is coated, about 2 minutes. Add broth and cream and bring to a boil. Scatter cauliflower over top (do not stir to combine). Cover and bake until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 15 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes before serving.

    Great recipe. I also added 1/2 teaspoon of garam masala and thought it was a nice addition. I used long-grain brown rice instead of white rice and cooked it for 30 minutes. It was crunchy so I added about a 1/2 cup of water and baked again for 10 minutes. Next time I'll just add this amount to the original cooking liquid. I also think that next time I won't brown the cauliflower--when it came out, it was almost mushy in texture (thanks to the extra time I let it bake). Overall GREAT recipe!!

    I only used 2 tsp of curry powder because I wanted to share this with my 1 year old. Surprisingly delicious. Will make again.

    Easy and delicious. I added a lot more spices to prevent it from being bland. 1 tsp of each: garam masala, cinnamon, corriander, tumeric, and paprika. Also used brown rice and cooked it for 30 mins.
