This bowl is packed with vegetables and also packed with flavor!  I don’t eat curry much, but every time I do I am reminded of how much I love it.  It’s almost sweet, and savory at the same time.  So I made a cauliflower rice bowl and topped it with delicious coconut curry vegetables.  This dish is dairy free and gluten free – just make sure you use gluten free soy sauce!  I used curry powder in this recipe, but I do recommend curry paste – it has more flavor and it will give you a deeper and more vibrant color.  I ALMOST bought red curry paste.. so sad I didn’t.  Curry powder gives it a curry flavor, but it is different – keep that in mind!
