From the Test Kitchen

To top a simple bed of brown rice, we’re bringing together a duo of roasted poblano pepper and vadouvan-spiced cauliflower with vibrant sweet chili sauce—a popular condiment that tempers spicy red chili with vinegar, sugar, and more. It’s all finished with a drizzle of cooling yogurt mixed with our herbaceous cilantro sauce.

Cut out and discard the core of the cauliflower; cut into small florets. Cut off and discard the stem of the pepper. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then medium dice. Place in a large bowl. Add 1 teaspoon of olive oil and season with salt and pepper; stir to coat. Thoroughly wash your hands immediately after handling the pepper. In a separate bowl, whisk together the yogurt and cilantro sauce; season with salt and pepper.
