The “it” vege of the moment has to be cauliflower. I love it and it is so versatile. You can eat it plain, cut it into “steak” wedges and grill it, roast it as a side dish, pulverize it into “rice,” and puree it into a hummus like I did.
I used one big head of cauliflower and chopped it into florets. I tossed them in EVOO, salt, and pepper, and roasted them in a 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes. This gets them soft and a little toasty. Step 2 is to drop the roasted florets into your food processor. Mix in fresh lemon juice, a little chopped garlic, olive oil, and salt. Whizz it up until you get the consistency you want.
Serve with sliced cucumbers, tomatoes, and pita bread. Or…
use it as a great spread on a Greek burger. For the burger, I mixed some pork sausage and beef together with some greek spices and feta cheese. My bun is pita bread. Yum!
