From the McDougall Program for Maximum Weight Loss.


  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1-1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp ground ginger
  • 1 tbsp ground turmeric
  • 1/2 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 2 white potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce (optional)
  • fresh cilantro, chopped for garnish


Place the onion and water in a larger saucepan. Cook stirring until the onion is tender. Add the spices, stirring several times, and add the cauliflower and potatoes and another 1/2 cup of water. Cook, covered, over low heat until the vegetables are tender, 25 to 30 minutes. Check occasionally and add more water if necessary to keep the vegetables from sticking to the pan. Before serving, stir in the soy sauce to taste and garnish with cilantro.
