I’ve been wanting to eat cauliflower for a few weeks now, but the ones at the green grocer just haven’t looked that great, not to mention they were quite expensive!
My craving was exacerbated yesterday when my mum gave me a big tupperware container of her famous Hungarian-style bean soup that featured home made noodles (called nokedli in Hungarian) and juicy little florets of cauliflower… but there was no cauliflower in it!
I could have raced out to the shops and bought some cauliflower then reheated the soup with some thrown in. But I was too lazy. Instead, I started fantasising about the cauliflower recipes I like to make and the ones I have posted here on Fig & Cherry.
My favourite ways to cook cauliflower are roasting and deep frying (oh OK, and smothered in cheesy bechamel in a gratin). I love the way when you coat it in a tasty crumb in the form of cornmeal or polenta it adds a whole new flavour dimension (and a few more nutrients).
This polenta crumbed cauliflower is from the archives. I made it all the way back in July 2008. Woah. I’m linking it up with the lovely Veggie Mama‘s Meatless Monday round up. Click here to check out all the other yummy vegetarian dishes being featured this week.
