Cauliflower With Fresh Cilantro

Cauliflower With Fresh Cilantro created by Artandkitchen

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!

ingredients

directions

  • In a large pot steam the cauliflower in salted water for about 6-7 minutes. Drain well.
  • In saute pan, heat the olive oil on medium-high and add the steamed cauliflower, garlic, and chili. Stir fry for about 2-3 minutes being careful not to burn. Add the scallions, the cilantro leaves and the Middle Eastern red pepper. Stir in well. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • NOTE: I've never used Middle Eastern red pepper. I have been informed by a kind Zaar member that harissa can be used for the Middle Eastern Pepper. Thanks, FiFi! cg 02-06-06.

    I usually roast my cauliflower but enjoyed it steamed and mixed with the scallions and spices. Thanks!

    For the past few years, I lived with friends who hated cauliflower. Now, in my own kitchen, I am realizing how much I missed it---at least in a presentation like this. I'm eating it as I write--can't wait--even my slightly wimpy version (reduced heat) is magnificent. Just the right amount of olive oil, of spring onions (which I lucked into at our rather meager farmers' market today) and garlic. And the cilantro is SO perfect with the hint of heat. Thank you, CG. I am truly grateful.
