Tomato Braised Cauliflower

Tomato Braised Cauliflower

Believe it or not, I’ve been in a cauliflower rut. And you can bet that my kids have let me know, “awww…Mom…cauliflower AGAIN?”

I think I’ve hit the household roasted cauliflower limit as that’s the only recipe that I’ve been cooking. My family is protesting. Ouch.

So, it’s time for a change and this was a big one…but it certainly was a hit. The recipe is Tomato Braised Cauliflower – a simple Greek recipe from How to Roast a Lamb: New Greek Classic Cooking cookbook by Michael Psilakis that came out last year (highly recommend this book)

Another recipe I’ve made from this book is the Greek Burgers with Roasted Pepper Feta Spread <- stop right here and bookmark that recipe. It seriously will put you in a happy place.

And this Tomato Braised Cauliflower recipe will go just nicely with it. Get recipe at Steamy Kitchen on TLC.

    Hi Jaden — I take 2 whole heads of cauliflower in marinate them in Tandoori Spices and yogurt and then bake them in my Schlemmertopf Clay pot. Really outstanding.
    I have also been making a combo of mashed potatoes and mashed cauliflower. Half the calories.
    It’s snowing in Boston!

    I love cauliflower and typically do a roasted one with gruyere cheese, olive oil and garlic. Yours looks great and a new twist – a must try! :-)

    Hmmm….for a cauliflower dish that looks quite lovely. Generally speaking unless I am eating creamy cauliflower soup or have my cauliflower swimming in butter it is not one of my favorite dishes, but this I might have to try.

    Great recepie been cooking it for years my Cypriot grandmother taught me.
    Quick and easy. Though my hubbie doesn’t like cauliflower my kids love it!

    Nice variation, Jaden. For my kid who used to hate cauliflower, I baked it with olive oil, salt and pepper and topped it off with pecorino romano, and told her it was ‘white broccoli’ and she loved it. She loves broccoli by the way :-).

    There are a couple of other simple preparations that I usually when I cook cauliflower.

    Cauliflower with tomatoes and onions

    Whenever I think of cauliflower, I think of bland. But this looks the opposite of it! Maybe its time for me to extend an olive branch to cauliflower and give our relationship another shot.

    I myself,LOVE cauliflower! It’s a a shame it’s one of the only words I can think of that ends in “flower” that so many people DON’T like.hmmm. Big hug to the “unloved” flower!

    I’ve got to try this… The only time I have done cauliflower with tomato is with Indian spices. Doing it Greek-style sounds delicious!

    This is a refreshing way to cook caulifllower as I always had it white— either with cream or butter.

    I actually love cauliflower. I have a friend who I don’t see all that often and everytime I come to their place they make cauliflower. At first it was just a coincidence but now it has become sort of a fun thing that she does when I visit. We eat cauliflower… But I will give her some suggestions with this lovely tomato cauliflower, next time I visit!

    Oooh, I never thought of cauliflower in a tomato-based sauce! Must try. The great thing about this–I have all of the ingredients on hand! No special run to the store for a non-standard item needed. :) Thanks Jaden!

    I’m a huge cauliflower fan! Typically we eat it mashed with goat cheese, roasted with balsamic vinegar and blue cheese (can you tell I like cheese too?), or grated and steamed as a substitute for rice. The spices used here sound fabulous though, I can’t wait to try it!

    Cool blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your theme. Kudos

    In its simplest type, bondage may be holding another person’s fingers decrease while giving them a lap fly. On this situation you’ll find no restraints in any way. Bondage is more regarding the eroticism of becoming less than the handle of yet another human being or the eroticism of having total handle in excess of somebody else….
