When you’re looking for a plant-based meal, there are lots of ways to dal with it! This vegan number gets its creaminess from coconut milk.

Oven-bronzed cauliflower florets round out the dish, presented on a bed of white rice.

Cook the rice
Preheat the oven to 450°F. In a medium pot, combine the rice, 1 ¼ cups water (double for 4 portions) and a big pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer, 17 to 20 min., until the rice is tender and the water has been absorbed. Remove from the heat and let sit, covered, for 5 min. Fluff and keep warm.

Make the dal
Meanwhile, mince the garlic. In a second medium pot, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the garlic and sauté, 30 sec. to 1 min., until fragrant. Add the tomato paste and cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 min., until dark red. Add the lentils, coconut milk, 2 ⅔ cups water (double for 4 portions), ⅔ of the spices and S&P; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, 20 to 25 min., until the lentils have softened.

Meanwhile, remove the core of the cauliflower; cut the head into small florets. On a lined sheet pan, toss with a generous drizzle of oil, the remaining spices and S&P. Roast, stirring halfway, 18 to 20 min., until lightly browned and tender.
