Cauliflower Roll

Cauliflower is a versatile vegetable which is getting popular by the day. It is similar to broccoli and tastes great when cooked with the right flavors. Back in Kuwait, my family used to grow cauliflowers in the garden and we used to steam and eat them as a side dish along with other veggies. It is used in various cuisines as well, including Indian, Mediterranean and a host of other foods! This recipe uses Indian flavors and spices paired with Mediterranean flavors for the Cauliflower which are pan fried, then stuffed into a store bought naan along with sliced cabbages for the much needed crunch and the tahini sauce just to marry them all together. So tasty, that you won’t miss the meat at all!

      Cabbage works great as a slaw in tacos and rolls as they are healthy and provide a great crunch to the soft cauli in the roll! πŸ™‚

  9. I never thought of using cauliflower as a main dish. This would save a lot of money and better for the cholesterol than red meat. Personally, I like cauliflower just as it is, steamed and cooked and sometimes even just raw with ranch dressing. Cooking with meat can get to be expensive and dressing up the vegetables would make to not miss the meat at all! Christine Reed http://www.muddywritersblock.wordpress.com
