This Naan Butter Cauliflower makes the perfect weeknight Indian-inspired meal! Cauliflower gets baked with a naan breading then tossed in a butter curry sauce and served over rice for the perfect gluten-free, vegan meal!
Indian food is something I often forget about. Maybe I’m too busy eating my Italian pasta dishes to branch out, haha, but today I am so excited to be adding this Naan Butter Cauliflower recipe to my blog! This is such an easy, flavorful, filling weeknight meal perfect for these chillier winter days.
This recipe is adapted from the Butter Chicken dish you might be familiar with. The sauce is so rich and flavorful made vegan with coconut milk, vegan butter, ginger, garlic, Garam Masala, curry powder, turmeric, and a touch of maple syrup. I added diced onion, chickpeas and diced tomatoes to the sauce too.
But let’s talk about the naan cauliflower. You guys, it’s like cauliflower wrapped in naan and then baked in the oven for crispy, bread-y, scrumptiousness! A naan hug, if you will. Although I have naan in the photo, and you can certainly whip up some of my Gluten-free Vegan Naan to go along with this meal, the naan cauliflower allows you to skip the naan making but still get that carb-loaded goodness.
The naan breading is made with just 5 ingredients: almond flour, arrowroot powder, baking powder, dairy-free yogurt, salt, plus water, then you simply dip the cauliflower florets in the naan batter and bake in the oven for about 20 minutes until it starts to get crispy! While the naan cauliflower is baking, you make the sauce on the stovetop and then gently toss in the naan cauliflower and serve over rice!
I can definitely see more recipes like this coming to the blog, and if you’re also diggin’ this dish, don’t forget leave a comment below and tag me on Instagram or Facebook @HealthyLittleVittles #healthylittlevittles!
