What to do with half a cauliflower? Six of us home today so half a cauliflower was not enough as a main vegetable or even to use as fried “rice”.
I rummaged through my vegetables and found a bag of peppers and inspiration struck.
- 6 large peppers (I had smallish ones so I used a few more)
- ½ cauliflower
- 2 onions
- 4 cloves of crushed garlic
- ½ cup of sliced almonds
- 1 cup of grated cheese
- 1 can of chopped tomatoes, drained
- 2 eggs
- 1 OXO cube
- Salt and pepper
I switched the oven on to preheat (200 °C) and I riced my half cauliflower and put it to one side.
Then I chopped 2 onions and crushed 4 garlic cloves and fried them gently till soft and then I added ½ cup of sliced almonds still frying them gently.
Then I added to the riced cauliflower a small can of sweetcorn, 2 eggs, a cup of grated cheese and a drained can of tomatoes and one vegetarian OXO cube.
Season with salt and pepper.
Then I washed my peppers and sliced the tops of and removed the seeds.
I placed the peppers in an oiled dish, and filled them generously and popped their hats back on. I drizzled the tops with a splash of olive oil and a sprinkle of salt.
I put them on the oven for ½ an hour till the peppers are soft and they are nice and hot in the centre and just browned a little on top.
I served them with a nice pomegranate salad and some french bread.
Stay tuned for the pomegranate recipe!
