Chickpeas and cauliflower curry

Chickpeas and cauliflower curry

Recently I've spent quite some time browsing my new cookbooks to ffind some inspiration and this time it comes from the "Encyclopédie de la cuisine végétarienne". This book is really resourceful not just for receipes but also for a lot of techniques to prepare veggies or cereals, so I will come back to it quite often. One of the recipe that caught my eye at first reading was a chickeas curry with cauliflower and other veggies. I like very much the idea of having a plate all in shades of beige and yellows, and thought it'd be the perfect side for this beautiful piece of yellow tail (buri-鰤) I've found. Moreover I wanted to test something with the chickpeas water (heard that it could be used as a vegan egg white when whipped). The recipe for the curry is ultra simple. I used one can of chickpeas (remember I wanna try the whip thing), after draining them I heat some olive oil in a pan and roasted the chickpeas, then added chunks of cauliflower and roast them a bit too. Finally added curry powder, curcuma, salt, pepper and covered with water. Cooked at medium-high heat until most of the water is gone. Finally added a bit of fresh coriander. Ready to serve.

As for the whip, it works!!!! Talk about it soon.
