INGREDIENTS

  • 1 medium head cauliflower (about 2 lbs), cored

  • 2 tablespoons canola oil

  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds, crushed

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1 teaspoon Garam masala

  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger*

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground turmeric

  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 12 ounces skinless, boneless chicken breasts or thighs, cut into bite-size strips

  • 1 cup packaged shredded carrots

  • 1 cup fresh or frozen peas

  • ½ cup crunchy falafel-flavor chickpeas or chopped peanuts

DIRECTIONS

Break cauliflower into florets (about 8 cups). Place cauliflower in batches in a food processor. Cover and pulse each batch until crumbly and mixture resembles the texture of rice (about 6 cups).
In an extra-large wok or skillet heat 1 Tbsp. of the oil over medium-high heat. Add cumin seeds, cook and stir 10 seconds. Add the next six ingredients (through cayenne), cook and stir 10 seconds. Add chicken. Cook and stir 3 to 4 minutes or until no longer pink (adding additional oil if necessary). Remove chicken from wok/skillet.
Add remaining 1 Tbsp. oil to skillet/wok. Add onion, carrots, and peas, cook and stir 2 minutes. Add cauliflower, cook and stir 4 minutes more or until cauliflower is tender. Return chicken to skillet/wok, heat through. Top each serving with chickpeas and cilantro.
