Curried Peas and Potatoes 900x900

 1 medium onion, diced
 3 cloves garlic, minced
 0.50 thumb ginger, minced
 0.50 tsp cumin
 0.50 tsp coriander
 0.50 tsp curry powder
 0.50 cup tomato sauce (no added salt)
 3 medium potatoes, diced
 1 bag (2 cups) frozen peas
 1 container (8 oz) cherry tomatoes, chopped
 1 cup cauliflower, chopped
 0.50 cup cilantro, chopped

Saute the onion, garlic, ginger, and spices in a medium stockpot adding 1 Tbsp of water at a time to keep the ingredients from sticking to the pan. Cook 5 minutes or until onion becomes translucent and begins to caramelize.


Add the tomato sauce and potatoes to the pot. Cover and simmer for 7-8 minutes.


Add the peas, tomatoes, and cauliflower to the stockpot. Simmer another 5 minutes.


Remove from the heat and stir in the chopped cilantro.


Garnish with lemon juice and additional cilantro. Sit down to a bowl with friends and enjoy!
