 2 heads cauliflower, sliced into steaks
 1 cup red lentils, rinsed
 2 cups water
 1 cup plain yogurt
 2 cloves garlic, crushed
 2 scallions, chopped
 2 teaspoons curry powder
 Salt to taste
 2 cloves garlic, crushed
 1/4 cup olive oil
 1/2 cup parsley, chopped
 1/2 cup basil, chopped
Prep:
1

Trim cauliflower bottom and cut into steaks, slicing from root end to top. Don't worry about losing florets - they will still be good! You should get 4 steaks and the rest florets from each head.

2

Crush all garlic and chop herbs.

3

Rinse lentils.

4

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Make:
5

Place cauliflower on parchment-lined baking sheet. Spray with olive oil and roast for 20 minutes until soft and edges are browned.

6

Place lentils in pot with water and bring to boil. Simmer until lentils are al dente - about 5-8 minutes. Watch carefully - they will be ready when you can see a little tail emerge from the lentils.

7

Remove from heat and drain - set aside.

8

In a small sauce pot, start making the yogurt sauce. Sauté 2 cloves garlic, scallions until soft. Stir in curry powder and continue to cook until fragrant [about 1 minute.] Remove from heat and whisk in yogurt.

9

Stir together remaining garlic, 1/2 cup of olive oil, and herbs. Season with salt.

10

When cauliflower is done, place on plates with lentils and top with yogurt and herb mixture.
