Your Daily Recipe, 5 Oct (Cauliflower)

Inspired by my children yesterday.  If you are able to get a hold of purple or orange cauliflower at a farmer's market, this method preserves the colors beautifully.  If you're using white cauli, add 1/4 t. tumeric along with the coriander and dry ground chili.

Braised Cauliflower

Use one bag of frozen florets gently thawed under cool water or one fresh head cut down to florets.

Over medium-high heat, heat a 1/4 C cooking fat of your choice until hot but not smoking.  Add 1 t cumin seeds.  When they turn redish brown, add dry ground chilies to your personal taste and ground coriander.  After a few seconds, add the cauliflower.  Cook, stiring ocassionally, for 5 minutes.  

Next, add 1 1/4 C. vegetable broth, chicken broth, or chicken stock.  Turn the heat up to high until the liquid reaches a boil.  Turn down to medium and simmer, uncovered, until all of the liquid is absorbed, 20 to 30 minutes.

Yesterday, we ate this as a one dish meal, topped with tomatoes, feta cheese, and chimichuree sauce.
