CAULIFLOWER with GOLDEN RAISINS and Mint
This recipe bursts with flavor, and I prefer highly flavorful foods, I added raisin and just a little mint and it turns normal Cauliflower into a spectacular side dish
What you Need:
1 cup golden raisins
1/4 cup gin (or rum, brandy, or
1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
and leaves removed
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
2 cloves of garlic, peeled and
4 Tbsp of chopped Mint
1/4 cup candied walnuts or pecans
What you Need to DO:
Start by soaking the raisins in the gin or other spirits, making sure
they’re all covered. The longer they soak, the better. Prepare the
cauliflower florets. Mix the oil, vinegar, and garlic. Boil the cauliflower
in a shallow pan, barely covered with water. Add just a sprinkle of Sea Salt.
Cover the pan and cook the cauliflower for 3 to 4 minutes after the water comes to a boil, or
until barely tender when tested with a fork. Drain the water,
remove the cauliflower, and put it aside. Now add the oil, vinegar,
and garlic and mint to the pan and heat this before adding the cauliflower.
Sauté it just long enough for the garlic to become transparent. Mix
in the nuts and serve.
