Curried Cauliflower Steaks with Red Rice & Tzatziki
Gone are the days when your rice choices were limited to white and brown. In this healthy vegetarian dinner recipe, the aromatic flavor of red rice or brown basmati jibes deliciously with fragrant curry powder. Because you need 2 whole heads of cauliflower to get 4 cauliflower steaks, you'll have leftover cauliflower florets to use up. Roast the florets alongside the steaks, then toss them with some chickpeas and tzatziki sauce for a healthy lunch (see Tip, below).
To make ahead: Refrigerate tzatziki (Step 1) for up to 5 days; refrigerate roasted cauliflower florets for up to 3 days.
Tips: Turn leftovers into a Curried Cauliflower Salad for lunch: Combine 6 Tbsp. leftover tzatziki with 1 sliced scallion and 1/2 tsp. curry powder. Chop the reserved roasted cauliflower florets; stir into the sauce with 1/3 cup diced cucumber and 1/4 cup rinsed canned chickpeas. Serve garnished with cilantro, with a 6-inch whole-wheat pita.
