Add garbanzo beans and cauliflower; season with salt and pepper. Stir in diced tomatoes with their juices and coconut milk. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until cauliflower is tender, about 15 minutes; fold in spinach. Remove from heat and stir in cilantro.
Serve hot over cooked basmati rice with a dollop of yogurt.
We suggest Pedrosillano café garbanzos in this recipe, which are available in our bulk department. It works just fine with canned, drained beans, too.
