    1 T. peanut oil
    1 med. onion (about 1 cup), coarsely chopped
    1 jalapeño pepper, diced
    1 clove garlic, diced
    2 t. salt
    1 T. curry powder
    1/4 t. cinnamon
    1/4 t. cardamom
    1/4 t. turmeric
    Shake of cayenne pepper if you like spicy food
    1.5 c. water

    1/3 head cauliflower
    4/10 block extra firm tofu
    5 oz. Trader Joe's light coconut milk
    2 T. cornstarch
    2 T. dry roasted peanuts


Saute onion, jalapeño, and garlic in oils over medium heat until they are soft. Add salt & spices; saute briefly to coat veggies.

Add water, chunks of sweet potato & parsnip, followed by cauliflower (separated into small flowerets) & tofu (cut up in chunks). Cook about 20 minutes over medium-low heat.

Pour coconut milk in a bowl & stir in cornstarch until reasonably smooth. Add to simmering curry & heat briefly to thicken.

Serve over rice, sprinkling peanuts on top. Makes about 5 generous servings.
