Recently cauliflowers have been in plentiful supply and very reasonably priced. Now there are only two of us at home if I buy a whole cauliflower I would like to do more than one recipe using the cauliflower. My sister put me on to a great recipe, Chilli-fried Cauliflower, from Charmaine Solomon’s Complete Vegetarian Cookbook and in the past I have used that recipe quite a lot but it was time for a change.
Last week I borrowed some cook books from the library, one of which was Fast, Fresh, Simple by Donna Hay.
This is a wonderful book. I already have two Donna Hay books of my own but this one had several recipes which I decided to try.
Cauliflower and roasted hazelnut salad.
An alteration I would make to the recipe when I cook it again would be to add 1/4 cup of hazelnuts instead of 1/2 a cup.
The recipe only used half of the cauliflower so I had a half still to use. Luckily I had borrowed Sally Wise’s “The Complete Slow Cooker”.
I found a delicious soup recipe which I just have to share with you. Cauliflower, carrot and cumin soup.
You just need to click on the image to make it larger. The soup was delicious despite the fact I didn’t have the correct amount of carrots! I just made sure I used large onions instead to make up for the lack of carrots.
I didn’t take any photos of the respective dishes but I can assure you that both recipes will be used again by me.
I have Sally Wise’s Year in a Bottle book and it has proved to be most useful. I think I will go and buy a copy of this Slow Cooker Book as there are so many delicious recipes in it and it would prove to be useful too.
