Cauliflower and Seitan Curry

Saturday was our first trip to the farmer's market with baby Jonas. We've been for walks around the neighborhood but this was his first outing where he got to meet lots of people. Well, lots of people met him; he was more interested in sleeping than meeting people. There was a bounty of produce, and one find was a nice big head of cauliflower. Last night Darlene's mom came over to watch Jonas for a bit while we got some things done around the house (like take showers for the first time in at least 3 days). Then I probably should have taken a nap but I really wanted to make a nice dinner for a change and use some of our fresh local produce.

One of the only things I know to do with cauliflower is make a curry so off I went. I ended up using the excellent Vindaloo Vegetables recipe from Fatfree Vegan as a guide, but made several changes based on what we had on hand. I didn't have quite the diversity of vegetables found in Susan's recipe so it was mostly cauliflower with a couple of carrots thrown in for good measure. And the seitan we made before baby came is still paying dividends. We had a chunk of that thawed from the freezer so I diced it up and threw that in the curry as well. The best thing about this meal though was that there's enough left over for lunch today and dinner tonight.

But you don't really care about any of that do you? Cute is what sells so here's the money shot.

Too cute!! Luckily, my kids have always loved showers, but it is hard to get clean with a little one in a shower sling...it made me feel better if not entirely cleaner. :-)
