1 large head cauliflower cut into pieces.
olive oil, salt, pepper, and about 1/2 tsp garam masala.
1 sweet onion, diced
3 cloves of garlic
3 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced into 1/2" chunks

*Toss chopped cauliflower with olive oil, salt, pepper and garam masala. Pour it onto a baking sheet and roast in a 400 oven for about 25 minutes. While that's roasting, add onion, garlic, diced sweet potatoes, and water into a large pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are tender.
