A little middle eastern delight for your lunch or dinner. Gobbled (and seconds requested) even by my (getting pickier) six year old.
- One large head cauliflower, chopped into bite size pieces
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 tsp ground cumin
- 2 tsp ground coriander
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ground cardamom
- 1/4 tsp ground cloves
- 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1/8 tsp ground allspice
- 2 tsp granulated garlic
- 1/4 tsp cayenne (or as you wish depending on desired heat level)
- ground black pepper (about 1/2 tsp)
- optional: 1 Tbsp oil
- chopped cucumber
- chopped tomato
- lemon tahini sauce (I used the second version tonight – either is fine)
In a large saute pan, add cauliflower, water and salt. Cook on medium, covered, for about 10 – 15 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Add all spices (and optional oil) and cook 2 minutes more.
Recommended assembly. Take whole pita, slather with hummus, add cauliflower, top with cucumber, tomato and a drizzle of lemon tahini sauce. Fold and enjoy!
Tweaked a tad from this recipe.
