Cooking Ideas - Indian-Style Sauté of Cauliflower and Greens

Here's a recipe from Deborah Madison's Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone. Any of the cooking greens you'll find at the market this Sunday will substitute nicely for the spinach and watercress. Enjoy!

Indian-Style Sauté of Cauliflower and Greens
(From Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone by Deborah Madison)

3 potatoes, peeled and cubed
1/4 cup clarified butter or ghee
1 large onion, thinly sliced
1 small cauliflower, quartered and thinly sliced, including the stem
2 tsp. chopped garlic
1/2 tsp. turmeric
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. ground coriander
1 tsp. mustard seeds
1 bunch spinach, stems removed
1 bunch watercress, large stems removed
1 small carrot, grated
Juice of 1 lime
Several pinches of garam masala
Cilantro sprigs for garnish

Steam the potatoes until tender. Heat 2 tablespoons of the butter in a wide sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and sauté until well browned, about 12 minutes. Remove and set aside. Melt the remaining butter in the same pan over high heat. Add the cauliflower, season with salt, and sauté until it begins to color in places, about a few minutes. Return the onion to the pan and add the garlic, spices, and potatoes. Lower the heat and cook until everything is heated through, about 4 minutes. Add the greens, carrot, and 1/2 cup water. Cover and cook until the greens are wilted, about a minute. Season with lime juice and a few pinches of garam masala, then turn onto a platter and garnish with the sprigs of cilantro.
