With local vegetables ripening in my container 'garden' and appearing on every market stall, I'm trying to make the most of them. Among other new season's vegetables I've also bought some great cauliflowers from the market, and am looking for great new recipes. So far, I've tried cauliflower with sage butter & eggs and Ilva's spicy cauliflower with tomatoes. I've roasted cauliflower (wonderful!!) and I've given it an Indian touch in gobi matar (cauliflower & peas with cumin). Here's the simplest way of serving cauliflower - boil, drain, melt, pour & sprinkle kind of dish - very common here in Estonia. But with good young cauliflowers, this is divine (if you like cauliflower, that is).
What's your favourite way with cauliflower? And do you like cauliflower at all? I'd love to know!
Cauliflower with browned butter & breadcrumbs
cauliflower, cut into florets
couple of sage leaves
Bring a large pot of water to the boil, season with salt and add cauliflower florets. Boil for 5-10 minutes, until softened, but still al dente.
Meanwhile, heat butter in a small saucepan and simmer on a medium heat until it browns a little. Add breadcrumbs, stirring.
To serve, place cooked cauliflower florets on a plate and drizzle some browned butter with breadcrumbs on top.
Garnish with some sage leaves and serve at once.
BLAST FROM THE PAST
Two years ago I had bought my first digital camera and these photos of CHEESY FEET alias footprint-shaped cheese biscuits with caraway seeds were the first photos I took with it. I think my teeny Casio Exilim will retire from now on, however, as K. got us a new camera today :)
