    From the Test Kitchen

    To top a simple bed of white rice, we’re bringing together a duo of roasted poblano peppers 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.

    • ½ cup Plain Nonfat Greek Yogurt

    Prepare & roast the cauliflower
    1 Prepare & roast the cauliflower

    Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut out and discard the cores of the cauliflower; cut into small florets. Transfer to a large bowl; drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and the curry powder. Toss to coat. Reserving the bowl, evenly divide between two sheet pans; arrange in an even layer. Roast 24 to 26 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

    Meanwhile, carefully rinse the rice (sifting through for any impurities). Drain thoroughly. In a medium pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 2 cups of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 13 to 15 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork.
