After years of hating cauliflower with a PASSION, H. and A. have changed my culinary life. I was treated to the most amazing dinner at their house last night, which included this wonderful cauliflower salad, thanks to a recipe by Hugh Fernley-Whittingstall, the recipe is clicking here! The cauliflower is obviously having a bit of a renaissance.
The recipe is basically, crisp raw cauliflower with lemons, oil, toasted pumpkin seeds , sesame seeds and sumac …..something I had never heard of before. It is a crushed powdered berry that has a lemony taste, very popular in Turkish cooking. You may recognise the plant. So after years of thinking the cauliflower was the devil’s work…. I am converted. bring on the raw cauliflowers!
