Serves 4

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, sliced in thin rings
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 butternut squash, peeled and cubed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • dashes cinnamon
  • dashes cardamom
  • dashes black or Aleppo pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 8 ounces frozen cauliflower floret
  1. Heat the oil in a medium pot. Saute the onion over medium heat for about 5 minutes till softening. Add the garlic and saute for another minute or two, stirring, till you can smell the garlic beginning to cook.
  2. Add the butternut squash and stir. Add the salt and spices and stir again. Pour in about 1/2 cup water just to cover the squash. Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook covered for 15 minutes until the squash is almost done.
  3. Add the cauliflower and cook for another 10 minutes or so, until the cauliflower is thoroughly heated through. Serve hot, warm, or at room temperature.
