Sometimes there’s no better way to start the week than with a crockpot recipe, and this healthy slow cooker potato and cauliflower curry is my current favorite.

Normally I like to keep things pretty upbeat and positive around here, but as you guys know I have been a little under the weather for the last week. Since there’s no need to sugar coat anything (because we are all human and get sick), it’s made things hard. I almost never get sick (it’s been years, in fact I can’t remember the last time), but I guess when I do, it hits me hard. I ended up spending the weekend really trying to rest up and praying for a healthy week ahead.

Thankfully I am thinking positively and feel as though I am on the mend, but I’ve got to say, slow cooker recipes like this curry save the day when one is sick. This is one of those amazing slow cooker recipes that you really do just drop in all the ingredients, forget about it, come back later, and eat. No extra steps…other than making this naan, which luckily I almost always have on hand in my freezer…unless my mom and littler sister know about it, in which case it’s literally gone in a day.

Anyway, when you do curry, you have to do naan. Everyone knows this though, right?

Well if you didn’t, now you do!

For weeks now I have been wanting to create a curry recipe, but I’ve created so many over the years that I wanted to create something different from the others. I’ve really been having a moment with potatoes. I think mostly because Thanksgiving is right around the corning (excited) and I had my mind set on a potato curry.

When I first set out to make this recipe, I tried to make it in the Instant Pot with beef short ribs, and not going to lie, it turned out horrible. I am still new to the Instant Pot and learning my way around it, but man this just was not good. Instead of reworking it, I gave it a week’s time, and in that time decided to take a new approach.

I don’t know about you guys, but I will forever and always love my slow cooker. It’s simple and easy and it always cooks up something good…

So I turned to my slow cooker, nixed the short ribs, added cauliflower, and just like that I had the perfect healthy curry recipe that’s comforting, warming, delicious, and requires almost no thought to make.

And if all that does not convince you, this curry is also incredibly good for us. It’s loaded with veggies like potatoes, cauliflower, and spinach, and the spices throughout the curry are bound to knock out pretty much any cold.

Um? Can you say, yes please? Clearly I will be making this tonight.

I like to serve each bowl with a scoop of rice, side of naan, and topped with lime, cilantro, and pomegranate arils.

Comfort in a bowl and seriously so good.

In other news, I spent some time with the family’s new puppy, Merle, on Saturday night and I think I have fallen hard for him.

He is the sweetest. Granted he was pretty wiped out from hiking earlier in the day, so he just cuddled with me all night well I worked…I know, I know. Such a wild Saturday night, right? But as I mentioned was trying to just take it easy and the sweet little guy not only kept me company, but kept warm too. It was freezing here on Saturday (we got snow on Friday night) and I just could not get warm. Having little Merle by my side at night was the best.

Sometimes it really is just the little things.

ps. Any suggestions for how to get Merle to get along with Snape? Or maybe I should say, how do I get Snape to tolerate Merle?

Lastly, I just want you guys to know that we are actively working on the site to get it back into tip-top shape. I’ve got my super woman mom, aka HBH’s business manager, aka the woman who gets it all done, working on the task, so fingers crossed it’s in better shape come this Friday.

The font and print page should be fixed today or tomorrow! So sorry for any inconveniences you guys might be experiencing and please be sure to comment or email me with anything you are not liking.

    I just made this yesterday and it was excellent. Added some peppers although you don’t need to, excellent either way.

    1. Hey Susan,
      Thanks so much for making this recipe and sharing your feedback, I love to hear that it was enjoyed!! xTieghan

    Made it in my instant pot at 15 minutes as suggested by the author but the cauliflower feel apart and the dish was too bland. I would not make it again.

  3. 1 star
    We really wanted to like this recipe (so easy to put together before leaving for a busy morning and we love Thai curries)– but sorry to say this was not to our taste at all (and the long cooking cauliflower made for a distinctive, unpleasant odor when I returned home from said busy morning). I’d recommend trying another recipe.

  4. This dish smells and tastes amazing! This was actually my first slow cooking dish 🙂
    But do you know what temperatures “low” and “high” on your slow cooker mean? I only have a Instant pot with slow cooking function (low, medium, high). While the potatoes were good, the cauliflower disintegrated to mush. Still tatsted good though 🙂

  5. Oops … you mentioned ribs – how many, and did you brown them, before adding to the slowcooker?

    I agree the slowcooker is indispensable; I have three – two are small, since I live alone – and they are the most-used appliances in my kitchen … after the teakettle.

    1. Hi Christine! I am sorry, I am not sure what you are asking? Can you clarify? There are no ribs in this recipe. Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe! Thank you!! xTieghan

    1. She mentioned that she had tried another recipe with ribs, and when that one didn’t work out — she switched to this one that she published. There are no ribs in this recipe.

  6. I’m sorry if I missed it somewhere on this page but what are the nutritional values per serving?

    I’d probably be most interest in the protein amount please.

    Thank you.

    1. Hi Uly! I am so sorry, but I actually do not provide the nutritional information beyond calories. I find it differs with servings and what is ultimately used.. Please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

  7. This looks delicious! Could I make it in my instant pot? Was thinking pressure cook for 10-15min? I was also planning on adding some lentils or chickpeas for some protein.

    1. HI! Yes, this will work great in the instant pot. I would cook on manual for 15 minutes and I think either lentils or chickpeas will be great! Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe. Thanks so much! xTieghan
