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.
