Warm cauliflower salad7 comments Dec 2nd, 2009 | By Tobias | Category: Recipes, Salads and Dressings, Side Dishes, Starters
With the weather cooling down warm salads are more and more welcome. At this time of the year, I prefer a hearty, warm plate to a cold salad. This cauliflower salad con be served as a side dish, but it can serve as well as a whole meal, especially for lunch. I served it with crusty oven baked potatoes. The tomato in combination with the cumin and the garlic gives the dish a mediterranean flair.
Preparation time: 3 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes
very simple recipe
- 1 cauliflower, cut in pieces
- 3 tomatoes, skinned and cubed
- 1 red onion, chopped
- 1 teaspoon of cumin
- a pinch of salt and pepper
- some olive oil
- 2 cloves of garlic
- some saffron
- a hand full of parsley, chopped
Skinn the tomatoe and cube it. You can also used canned tomatoes, depending on season and geography.
Fry the cubed onion in a bit of oil. Then add the chopped garlic. Stir and fry for a minute or two. Now add salt and pepper and saffron.
Now add the caulyflower and the tomato. Add a bit of water if needed. The vegetables should be just covered with liquid.
Cover the pot and let it boil for 15 minutes. Then let it boil for another 5 minutes without covering it in order to loose some liquid. The cauliflower should be done by now.
Place on a big serving plate and put lots of parsley over it. Ready to serve.
