They overwintered beautifully, but are such big plants, I’ll have to give them more room next time…. Apr. 2015 005

Regardless they produced some good sized heads ! I discovered an Amazing New Recipe! Thank you Jamie Oliver… Apr. 2015 005

This really is so good, I ate all the left over’s cold and thought it could easily be served that way as well…Yum!!

Here’s the original recipe:

Roasted Cauliflower with Cumin, Coriander & Almonds 

I improvised a little when I made it ; I was in  hurry, it was so delicious, I’ll likely do the same again 🙂

here’s my version…

1 Head Of Cauliflower, cut up into florets ( I used a lot of cauliflower approx. 1 very large head, maybe more)

2 tsp. Cumin seeds

2 tsp. Coriander seeds

1 tsp. Dried Chilli Peppers

1/2 cup (approx.) Almonds-Chopped small

1 Lemon , zest and juice

Olive Oil, enough to cover the bottom of a large skillet Butter, approx. 1 Tbsp.

Sea salt

Steam Cauliflower  till cooked , approx. 15 min and let it drain.

Grind herbs, peppers and salt till fine. you could use a mortar & pestle,  I used my herb & nut grinder, and chopped the almonds in there as well. Mix together in a hot pan , dry roast till they are lightly  browned.

Heat oil and butter in a separate pan then add the nuts & spice along with lemon juice & zest and heat through then add cauliflower. ( I wasn’t concerned about it being totally dry.)  I added some Toy Choi leaves for another veg,and cooked for a few minutes to wilt them.

I was in such a hurry I didn’t have time for pictures but I will try to add one, next time. Which should be very soon, I could eat this every day  😉
