Saffron broccoli and cauliflower

Saffron cauliflower

It has been so cold here, that the brain has been in freeze mode. For once, I'm glad that the kids are off their preschool for mid winter break. We and they are spared of the endless layers to be put on and then removed.

I know, I know, I live in the Mid West and shouldn't be complaining but when it's so cold (tomorrow the high is 4 and low -14deg F) then all bets are off.

In the middle of all this cold, I have been making mostly comfort food, but have tried some new recipes as well.

During the holidays, I got Jerusalem by Yottam Ottolenghi and I have been meaning to try recipes from there.

I finally got a chance to try the saffron cauliflower last week when some friends were over. The base of the recipe is so good, that all I had to do was spice it up a little bit, mix some broccoli with cauliflower and it was ready. It went really well with the rest of the meal.

It's perfect to serve with some chicken or even a mixed pulao/rice as well.

The heady mix of saffron and olives with some onions and 1 garlic and then topped with some parsley made the cauliflower and broccoli shine.
