Cauliflower Dreams


How domestic to dream of cauliflower! I’ve had a head in the fridge for a good week or so now – in reality, that is. And that sad, rejected head of cauli is looking poorer every day. So much so that it infiltrated my dreams!

Last night I dreamt that some lady brought over a lovely, gigantic head of cauliflower and said, ‘We must cook it.”

I thought, “That’s a nice idea and that cauliflower is superior to mine. But we can’t leave that little dejected thing sitting in the fridge. It must come first!

I think I’ve been a work-at-home mom for too long!

    Make stirfry – Heat oil in a wok. Add mustard seeds and cumin, wait until the mustard seeds pop. Toss in an onion, some garlic, and slices of ginger, stir until browned. Add your cauliflower, thin cut carrots, and sliced green beans. When they’re finally softening, toss in red and yellow pepper strips. Season with salt and garam masala.

    Serve with rice and with lentils – the lentils with a topping of tomatoes and cilantro. Optionally, serve a raita as well.

    Uly, you’re a gal after my own heart! I love Indian food. I assume it’s Indian because of the garam masala and raita.

    Young kids like cauliflower made like mashed potatoes… mash them with a little milk, butter and salt (pepper optional).

    I’m not sure it’s any sort of authentic recipe, but it tastes yummy.

    Mashed potatoes are outright exotic in our house… but we don’t do much in the way of dairy products because the nieces can’t have cow’s milk and non-cow’s milk is so expensive.
