This post is part of a gluten-free blog event that Sea over at the Book of Yum put together. For this month’s Adopt a Gluten Free Blogger event, I’ve adopted Catherine at A Gluten Free Guide. We decided to cook her Sorghum Cauliflower Curry. Catherine was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2004, and has been doing her best to get back to “normal” life since. She started A Gluten Free Guide to share her experiences and be a resource for people who are diagnosed with celiac disease. I’m especially enamored of a recent post of hers titled, A Gluten Free Diet – Sometimes it Sucks.
Sienna and I are huge fans of curries, and so the Sorghum Cauliflower Curry stood out as a great recipe for us to try. Also, the photo on Catherine’s site makes it look really amazing. We weren’t actually able to find anywhere in town to buy sorghum, so we ended up settling on millet as a substitute.
We chopped up a ton of cauliflower. Put together the curry mix. Cooked the millet. Cooked the veggies.
Mixed everything up.
Chopped cilantro up for the garnish and BAM!
I guess I should note here that we also added some golden raisins to the mix. With curries we like to add some raisins, dried cranberries, or a chutney. There’s something magical about adding some sweet bites to a curry. Alternatively, a person can also add some yogurt on the side.
The one problem that came up when we made the recipe was that our cauliflower was done cooking way before we were ready to mix everything up. That kind of made us have to choose between over-cooking it, or cooling it down and then heating it up again. If we had it all to do over again, we would try to time everything to be ready when the cauliflower was ready to go.
Being huge curry fans, it was a natural that we would really like this recipe. Having a grain mixed in makes the dish especially hearty. We also like getting our veggies in such a delicious way. As another bonus, it kept really well so I was able to have the leftovers for lunches during the week.
We’ll definitely try more recipes from A Gluten Free Guide in the future. I would definitely recommend both her site and Book of Yum to anybody on a gluten free diet. Thanks to Sea at the Book of Yum for putting this blog event together!
