I’m starting to love cauliflower, actually really love it. No I haven’t yet used it to make a pizza base (for those of you who’s tried it, please tell me if this really works!), weather it raw in a salad, or cooked and blended with other flavours it acts as a great pallet enhancer.
For a weekday meal I wanted something that didn’t take up too much time but also warm as I’ve been eating variations of salads due to the heatwave so a change was needed. Curry it was (from one extreme to the other)! The kitchen is always stocked with these spices, as you well know, therefore a caulifower curry seemed mike the right way to go, this dinner served both us too, and lunches for the next two days (I still have half of the cauliflower left)!
