From the cookbook Arabian Delights. This is a Saudi Arabian
dish known as qarnabeed bil kuzbara. The recipe calls for Middle Eastern (also known as Turkish) red pepper and if you can get it then you are very lucky indeed. If not, substitute 3 parts paprika to 1 part cayenne. I think this would taste wonderful with either broccoflower or romanesco instead of cauliflower. Very spicy!
This is such a refreshing way to use cauliflower. I can eat the whole thing by myself...and sometimes I do. This is also nice with some chopped nuts sprinkled on top.
UPDATE: On 01/14/08 I made this the way Rita describes....cooking it all together but upping the apple juice with 2 more tbsp It worked well and cuts out a step. Thanks Rita, for a lovely idea!
I find it totally amazing, that children and men ALL LOVE THIS RECIPE! As for the Female of our species we just love this for the flavor and the health benefits it brings our families.
Roasted brings out a wonderful sweetness in this dish. The Garlic is roasted to a tan color is creamy good. You can just pop them in your mouth. Or you can spread them on your florets or fresh bread. Just be sure to scoop up some of the rosemary, olive oil and black pepper that may have escaped to the bottom of the dish.
For Halloween check out Recipe #396674 version of my recipe.
I actually won a cash prize in our local paper for this recipe. My husband and I will eat the whole thing ourselves - make several if you're having guests. If someone you love doesn't care for cauliflower, this may be the ticket!
