Shaved Cauliflower with Pine Nuts and Currants


Cauliflower has quickly become a fixture at meal time.

Roasted Cauliflower and Cauliflower Fried Rice are our new family favorites.

So, it came as no surprise that I’d want to keep the cauli-momentum going.  After all, when you find an ingredient that has received the seal of approval by family members, it makes sense to keep trying similar recipes.

The other evening, I was leafing through a wonderful Greek-inspired cookbook at a friend’s house (Mina Stone Cooking for Artists) and found a deliciously simple recipe for Sliced Cauliflower dish.

The recipe only calls for three main ingredients and lucky for me I had all of them at home.  You can use olive oil and lemon juice to create a refreshing, understated dressing.

Sweet currents combined with the roasted pine nuts add to the crunch of the cauliflower to make this dish a winner.  I chose to leave out the parsley from the original recipe and sprinkled in some garlic powder to taste.  Feel free to use your creative license with your ingredients.  I’d imagine dried cherries or even dried blueberries would add some beautiful color and flavor too.

Try it for yourself.
