|4||Garlic cloves; minced|
|2 cups||Chopped cauliflower florets|

I got this recipe from the recent issue of "Cooking Light" - I modified it, of course.
1. Heat a large saucepan (nonstick or with Pam or broth) over medium-high heat. Add onion and next 5 ingredients (onion through garlic); saute 2 minutes. Add cauliflower and tomato; saute 1 minute. Stir in water and lentils; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer 35 minutes or until lentils are tender. Stir in lime juice, cilantro, and salt. Serve with rice.
My changes - I used canned tomatoes, used broth instead of water, left out the salt, and didn't use the rice. I think you could use curry powder instead of the red pepper and turmeric.
