Tumeric and a dash of mild curry give this cauliflower dish a sunny jolt of yellow color.



  • Cook onion, garlic, curry, cumin, tumeric, salt, pepper, red-pepper flakes and bay leaf in olive oil in a 6-quart heavy pot over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until onion is soft, 5 minutes.
  • Stir in broth, brown sugar, and lemon juice and bring to a boil. Add cauliflower and cook over moderately low heat, covered, stirring occasionally, until cauliflower is crisp-tender, 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Transfer cauliflower with a slotted spoon to a serving platter and sprinkle with parsley or cilantro.
