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.

  1. 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 🙂

  2. 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

  3. 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

  4. 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

    1. Sure, that will be fine. Please let me know if you have other questions. Hope you love this recipe! Thanks! 🙂

  5. Curry is the best dish of all time, especially with red curry paste, spinach, and cauliflower! Pomegranate molasses sounds really interesting too! I definitely have to try it!

    I just made this for dinner tonight, such a nice hearty recipe for transitioning from fall to winter! I love that you mixed middle eastern spices with thai red curry, the combination, and with the pomegranates was perfect!

    Thank goodness I followed the link to your blog that I happened upon on another site……your photos are stunning and your creativity Is admirable. And this recipe is beyond amazing. I made it last Tuesday then promptly ordered your cookbook on Wednesday. Can you tell that I think you are absolutely terrific??

    1. Wow thank you Barb! I am so happy you love my this recipe! I hope you love some others on my blog and in the book!! ?

    Hello from France, I made this last night and it was delicious ! I added 2 large onions and served with cheese naans. The cooking time was way too long, everything was perfectly cooked through after only 2,5 hours on low. I guess it depends on the cooker and the size of the vegetables. Your work is amazing Tieghan, I love your recipes and photos and, I admit, also keeping up with your family’s life 🙂 I’m not much of a pumpkin/butternut person and Halloween is not really a French holiday, so I’ll patiently wait for this time-of-the-year to end.

Keep sharing with us Tieghan your work is amazing. Halloween isn’t a very French holiday and me not being a pumpkin/butternut person I’ll patiently wait for this season to go by… 😉

    I made this for my family and I yesterday and it was delicious! It had a lot of different layers of flavor, none of them over powering the other. Only thing I would do differently is to lower the the cook time to it. The cauliflower and potatoes were cooked more than I would have like them to be. Next time I will try 4 hours on low. I also added dino kale instead of spinach and it was great. Instead of rice or naan, my fam and I ate them with noodles.

    Really good recipe!

  11. Hey Tieghan,
    I’m sorry you haven’t been feeling well and I hope your doctors visit went ok and you’re able to know whats going on. I also rarely get sick and it gets bad if I do. But I take a capsule of Tumeric every day and that seems to help a lot! (When I feel slightly off, I take an extra and feel better. Also, my mom’s partner has ulcerative colitis and his doctor finally recommended tumeric after normal medication wasn’t helping). Maybe some comfort food (like this lovely curry) and cozy housework will help your body rest. I’m glad you were able to snuggle up with Merle and I hope you’re staying warm!

    1. Hi Kristin! Thank you so much for the suggestion, I will look into taking that or adding more turmeric to my diet to help! Definitely some comfort food this week with the cool weather tho haha! Thank you!

  12. Please! Where has the save button gone? I have the Big Oven thingie and used to be able to save your recipes there by clicking the little heart. Why can’t I save the recipes any more??

    1. Hi Nancy, we don’t work with big oven, but I am working on seeing if we can add the save button back. Please let me know if you have any other questions. Sorry for the trouble. Thank you!

    OH and I forgot! This looks delicious and I just bought small golden potatoes yesterday and have the other ingredients as well. I will add at the end some fried tofu and shaved almonds and probably some carrots too! Thank you!

    I absolutely love all your recipes. I am, personally, trying to inch my way to a more vegetarian diet to one day be able to go vegan, but I do not mind preparing different foods for others except for dishes that call for red meat and pork. Still, most of your dishes can be modified. I love also the actual look and design of your page! Thank you so much for all your posts.

  15. Thanks for posting a vegetarian slow cooker recipe. I like the idea of getting a slow cooker but don’t eat meat, and I think of slow cookers as being mostly for meaty things. I was concerned that cooking vegetables this long would turn them to mush, so I’m looking forward to trying this out and hope you’ll post more.
    I have a 6 month old puppy and two cats. One cat immediately accepted the pup, and the other didn’t. Make sure Snape can get away to someplace safe when Merle is around but eventually, Snape’s curiosity will probably kick in and he/she will get used to the puppy. Supervise the interactions and let the cat swat the dog, and gradually they should learn to tolerate each other. It might be harder if Merle has a strong prey drive so good to do this when he’s young. Pictures of both, please!

    1. I hope this recipe turns out great for you Lisa! Oh and thank you for the advice on the cat and dog situation, I will try this out!

  16. WHen I was living in Manchester, whenever I went for a takeway it was always curried potatoes. I don’t know what’s about it but I just love love love curried potatoes. I’ve been replicating that dish ever since I came back to Portugal, and this version is already on my to try list.
