  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped  
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon brown mustard seeds
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 small cauliflower, cored and separated into small florets
  • Kosher salt
  • 2 carrots, cut into 2-inch matchsticks
  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken 
  • 5 ounces baby spinach

How to make this recipe

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over moderately high heat. Add the onion and ginger and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly softened, about 5 minutes.

  2. Add the curry powder, mustard seeds, cumin and turmeric and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the cauliflower and stir to coat with the spice mixture. Add 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 cup of water to the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, until the cauliflower is crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Add the carrots and cook until just tender, about 3 minutes, adding a little more water if the mixture looks dry.

  3. Stir in the chicken and spinach and cook, stirring, until the chicken is heated through and the spinach is wilted.
