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
other spirits)
1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
and leaves removed
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
2 cloves of garlic, peeled and
minced
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.
