Red Curry Cauliflower Rice Vegetable Soup Instant Pot

Red Curry Cauliflower Rice Vegetable Soup-Instant Pot.  I had vegetables left in the refrigerator, and wanted to use them to make something very delicious.  I started with minced cauliflower (aka cauliflower rice), mushrooms, zucchini, onion, cherry tomatoes and mixed greens (with kale, spinach and collard greens.)  My original intention was to make a stir fry, and use Thai Red Curry Sauce to spice it up with yummy flavor.  I also am trying to create as many recipes as possible in the Instant Pot, because everyone needs good food, right now.  The Instant Pot lets you make great recipes in a hurry, which is perfect for your hungry crowd when you are pressed for time.  This dish is vegan, gluten free and dairy free.

Grilled Sesame Ginger Cauliflower Steaks

Grilled Ginger Cauliflower Steaks.  I was at the grocery store shopping for other items this week, (not colored cauliflower) and saw a package of 4 cauliflower steaks, each a different color–purple, orange green and white.  It was really eye catching.   I walked around the store to find my other items, because of course, like everyone, I try to only buy what I came to the store for.  Nevertheless, the cauliflower in all of those jewel tones was really mesmerizing, so I found myself back at the produce section.

I have seen many recipes for cauliflower steaks, but none featured jewel tone cauliflower.  Since it is still summer, and Labor Day is coming up, I decided that I must make grilled cauliflower steaks.  I whipped up a Sesame Ginger marinade, cooked some jasmine rice in the Instant Pot, and I had a delicious dinner in less than 30 minutes, that was packed with nutrition and yep, those beautiful jewel tones.  When we can enjoy dishes like this that are vegan, vegetarian, gluten free and dairy free, who can feel deprived by eating healthy?
