By Mary McDougall, Dr. McDougall's Health and Medical Center


  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1-1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp ground ginger
  • 1 tbsp ground turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 2 white potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1-2 tbsp soy sauce
  • fresh cilantro, chopped for garnish


  • Place the onion and water in a larger saucepan.
  • Cook stirring until the onion is tender.
  • Add the spices, stirring several times, and add the cauliflower and potatoes and another 1/2 cup of water.
  • Cook, covered, over low heat until the vegetables are tender, 25 to 30 minutes.
  • Check occasionally and add more water if necessary to keep the vegetables from sticking to the pan.
  • Before serving, stir in the soy sauce to taste and garnish with cilantro.
