You can replace cauliflower with broccoli or cubes of sweet potatoes with squash.
You can also add squash or white turnip puree, slightly decreasing the amount of vegetable broth.
CAUTION: don’t replace green lentils with black ones, as curry will have a funny color. If you replace with red lentils, the curry will rather have the consistency of puree, because red lentils don’t keep their shape and they’re much smaller.
