CAULIFLOWER AND RED PEPPER
Yield: 6 servings
Source: America's Everyday Diabetes Cookbook
- 1 head cauliflower, florets only
- 2 red bell peppers, roasted, skinned and cut into thick strips
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon black mustard seeds
- 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
- 1/2 teaspoon whole coriander seeds
- 2 cloves garlic
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
Blanch cauliflower florets in a large saucepan of boiling
water for 5 to 6 minutes, until just cooked. Drain, refresh
in iced water, drain again and transfer to a bowl. Add red
peppers to cauliflower. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and toss.
In a small bowl whisk together the lemon
juice and Dijon mustard until blended. Set aside.
In a small frying pan heat the vegetable over medium heat for
1 minute. Add mustard seeds, turmeric, and coriander seeds,
and stir-fry for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the seeds begin to
pop. With a rubber spatula, scrape cooked spices from the pan
into the lemon-mustard mixture. Squeeze garlic through a
garlic press and add to the mixture. Add olive oil and whisk
until the dressing has emulsified.
Add dressing to the cauliflower-red pepper mixture. Toss
gently but thoroughly to dress all the pieces evenly.
Transfer to a serving bowl, propping up the red pepper
ribbons to properly accent the yellow-tinted cauliflower.
This salad benefits greatly from a 1 to 2 hour wait, after
which it should be served at room temperature.
