Sometimes we create something which is not quite what you set out to. This dish is just how I made it. This is a kid friendly recipe to make and eat too.
I wanted to create a spicy cauliflower bake but it turned out a fragrant one. This is a completely oil free dish. I think 1 tablespoon of oil to coat the cauliflower florets would have done a lot of good to the taste. It is a very bland kind of a bake so you see the sprinkle of red chilli powder. May be a sizzler sauce would have been a good addition to.
Though I did not enjoy it much Dad did and many who like bland food may like it.
1 head Cauliflower head
1 cup pitted olives
1/2 cup grated cheese
1 teaspoon oregano
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon red chilli powder
Break up the cauliflower florets and keep them immersed in water with 2 teaspoons of turmeric for 1/2 hr. The turmeric with make the cauliflower aseptic as well as a little tender.
In a bread pan put in the florets, olives, oregano and 1 tablespoon of Oil. (I did not use any but have included in this recipe to enhance the flavors, you can skip it if thats how you want to try it out. Toss them around a bit.) Top up with grated cheese, any type will do I used the regular Amul processed cheese. Preheat oven for 10 mins. Bake the dish for 40 mins. Serve hot with a sprinkle of red chilli powder. If you like to have it with a dip use schezwan sauce or just ketchup.
