Delicious Cauliflower


Cauliflower is high in vitamin C, so this dish is perfect for keeping colds away during Winter. Comforting, delicious, simple to make, and uses easy to find ingredients.

The butter beans bring both fibre and protein, so it's a healthy weeknight dinner, either on its own or as a side dish.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 1 hour
Serves: 4

Ingredients
1 tbsp olive oil
2 onions, sliced
3 large garlic cloves
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
2 pinches brown sugar
70 g sliced black olives
2 tbsp capers
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil leaves (plus more for garnish)
2 x 400 g cans diced tomatoes
1 x can butter beans drained & rinsed
1 cup vegan stock
1 cauliflower, leaves and stem removed (small cauliflower will take less time to cook)
Salt & pepper to taste

Vegan tip: Sprinkle some nutritional yeast in at the end to add a nice cheesy flavour.

Method
  • Heat oil in a pan large enough to hold the cauliflower head

  • Add onions and garlic over medium heat until soft

  • Stir in vinegar, brown sugar, black olives, capers and basil and cook for a further 3 minutes



  • Add the tomatoes, butter beans and vegan stock.
  • Stir well, simmer for 6 minutes, stirring occasionally.



  • Place the cauliflower in the centre of the sauce, pushing it down to cover half of it with the sauce. Season with salt and pepper.



  • Reduce heat and simmer for 45 minutes or until cauliflower is tender. Stir sauce gently around the cauliflower once or twice during cooking, to prevent sauce sticking while cooking.

  • Serve immediately, garnish with basil.

  • Tip: If made in advance, drizzle olive oil over cauliflower and warm until hot in the oven.

    Note: If you are using a larger cauliflower, it could take longer than 1 hour to get soft all the way through.
