2021-02-24 | by CusiGO
When we were ready to put this dish on the table to take pictures and share recipes with you, our daughter said it looked like “the earth” (I hope, we think, I hope to have such a green and vibrant earth). She likes nature, plants, flowers… And then she starts to draw, draw the earth in her imagination, and with a beautiful message, put it next to the picture that most children draw at the beginning of confinement, rainbow and message of hope. I’m sorry, we’re telling you this, not to get to the point with recipes or the inspiration for this dish, and then tell you, but the kids have a lot to teach us…
Well, earth is a whole baked cauliflower sprinkled with yogurt, tahini and mustard, covered with fragrant herbs and edible flowers. We got the idea from honest green restaurant chef Ben Bensoussan, who made recipes from instagram’s profile. We like the idea, the technology to make broccoli, the way to show broccoli… We’ve noticed that it’s one of their star dishes, and there are a lot of photos on social media, even though we haven’t tasted it in a restaurant (they have places of business in Madrid and Barcelona).
So we prepared the whole roast cauliflower at home, but with our yogurt sauce, tahini and mustard (tahini is sesame sauce) and the herbs we’ll tell you below, we can only suggest you try them. Even if you don’t like them, you’ll be surprised. You’ll be glad to know that the original recipe includes tahini and lemonade, covered with chopped fresh parsley, so you can also make any changes or adjustments to your taste or to what’s in the fridge.
If you’re afraid of baking a whole flower, you’ll find that it’s the easiest part of the recipe, so imagine the rest. What you have to do is cook in the pot and bake in the oven. The result is a very delicious cauliflower with creamy texture, so soft and creamy texture… We promise to make other recipes with different seasonings and sauces, because this is a dish we like, and we believe you will also like vegetables, Whether she likes it or not, it’s hard to include her in the diet. How to make it with purple broccoli?
Take out the cauliflower leaves and wash them. Fill the whole cauliflower with a pot of water (it doesn’t need to be covered, but it needs to be steamed), put it on the fire (there is water and cauliflower in the pot), bring it to a boil, then boil it over low heat for 12 minutes, and cover the pot. The time may vary depending on the size of the cauliflower, ranging from 10 to 15 minutes.
When you see that the cauliflower is very tender, but it is not too cooked to crack or peel, put it on a small baking pan, sprinkle spices and salt on the cauliflower, and season it with extra virgin olive oil to make it completely soaked.
Place the tray in a medium height oven with the grill at 200 ° C for about 15-20 minutes, or until the cauliflower turns golden. Check, because each oven is different. We’ll focus on the grill.
When you bake, broccoli prepares the sauce as we explained in the recipe. Don’t prepare fragrant herbs and flowers before serving, so they will be fresh and smooth.
When the cauliflower is ready, put it on a tray or plate and cut it in half with sesame and mustard. Then the leaves and flowers are roughly pecked off and sprinkled on the sauce. They stick together easily. Put the “Earth” on the table so your guests will be surprised, then cut it into quarters and distribute it. Put the rest of the sauce in the sauce for those who need to add more. Have a good time!
