- 1 large onion, chopped
- 1 cup carrot, diced
- 3 large garlic cloves, minced
- 1 1/2 teaspoon ginger, peeled and grated
- 1 red chili pepper, seeded and minced
- 14 ounce can tomato sauce
- 32 ounces low-sodium vegetable broth
- 3 cups russet potatoes, peeled and diced (1/2 inch)

- 2 teaspoons lime zest

- Combine spiced through cayenne pepper in a small bowl. Toss cauliflower with 1 tablespoon oil in a large bowl, sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of spiced mixture and toss until well coated.
- Spread in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Roast the cauliflower until the edges are browned, 15-20 minutes. Set aside.
- Meanwhile, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add onion and carrot and cook, stirring often, until starting to brown (3-4 minutes). Reduce heat to medium and continue cooking, stirring often, until the onion is translucent. Add garlic, ginger, chile and the remaining spice mixture. Stir and cook for an additional minute.
- Stir in tomato sauce, scraping up any browned bits, and simmer for 1 minute. Add broth, potatoes, sweet potatoes, lime zet and juice. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to maintain a gentle simmer and cook, partially covered and stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender, 35-40 minutes.
- Stir in coconut milk and the roasted cauliflower. Return to a simmer to heat through. Option to serve garnished with cilantro and chiles.
