Whenever I prepare this meal with cauliflower, it quickly disappears

Too often people think that vegetarian meals are boring and don't have a lot of flavor. In most cases, that's not actually true. Or rather, it doesn't have to be. Curry makes a very tasty dish, and it doesn't have to include meat. The recipe that follows uses mainly cauliflower and lentils, both of which make it as filling as it is delicious.
Curry dishes also make for a perfect slow cooker meal, giving all ingredients plenty of time to mingle and get to know each other. However, while you may be tempted to just throw everything in, set it and forget it, it's really not advised. Curry does best when all those spices meet a little bit of heat first so that they can become toasted and their flavor can really shine through. So take time perfecting that extra first step. You won't be sorry.
