Anyone who knows me can tell you about my deep and unending love for Indian food. While I don't cook most of the meals often (generally a lack of the myriad of spices needed), I did recently attempt this flatbread. It is super easy, and you will have it mixed, rolled, and cooked in 10-15 minutes. Plus, in its simplest form you can use as few as 3 ingredients, but the recipe offers a vast amount of room for customization. Herbs, spices, zests, etc can all be added. This recipe makes 4 chapatis, and seems easy enough to double/triple/etc. Because it comes together so quickly you can get to the point where you've rolled it out, then cover with a damp paper towel and just cook them up right before you serve your meal.

The cauliflower turns from bland and boring to golden and nutty and is so easy to prepare. For a dipping sauce I used a mix of ketchup and sriracha, though a peanut sauce, aioli, or tomato sauce would work nicely as well. If you have kids this could pass as a new type of "fry." Half a head of cauliflower is enough for 2-3 servings (or one. Hey it is cauliflower...no shame).
