Caribbean Curried Cauliflower with Black Beans & Coconut

A quick and easy veggie curry made with our Caribbean Creations seasoning. Roasting the cauliflower brings out a caramelised sweetness and it’s delicious in this spicy curry with the earthy black beans and spinach. Our easy to make roti are a delicious accompaniment or try with our coconut rice. Add some toasted coconut flakes as garnish for some added texture if you like.


Preheat oven to 220C/200Cfan

Put the cauliflower florets on to a baking tray and drizzle with oil. Sprinkle over 1 tbsp of the curry powder and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat and spread out in a single layer. Roast for 15 minutes. Turnover and roast for another 5-10 minutes until tender and golden brown.

Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a deep-sided frying pan over a medium heat and add the onion, garlic and ginger. Cook for4- 6 minutes until softened. Add the remaining curry powder, turmeric and 50ml of the water and cook for 1 minute. Add the beans, remaining water and the coconut milk and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 5-6 minutes. Add half the roasted cauliflower and cook for another minute or two. Stir in the spinach a handful at a time until wilted. Check for seasoning.

To serve ladle into bowls and top with the remaining roasted cauliflower and scatter over the coriander. Serve with lime wedges for squeezing and roti on the side.
