Our last veggie box had one of those crossbred veggies in it. It was a cauliflower. But orange. Fit for Alice to be served at the Mad Hatter’s tea party. The breeders boast that the orange cauli has 25% more vitamin A than it’s white brother but I like it because of the whimsy it adds to a veggie dish.
Just like a cauliflower… only orange!
I washed and chopped it along with green beans, potatoes and yams.
Heated olive oil and a range of aloo gobi-esk spices in the pan until bubbly. (I used cardamon, coriander, cumin, turmeric, paprika, chili powder, garam masala and cajun spice but you can use whatever is in your cupboard).
I added the veggies hardest to softest on a medium heat adding a little water as I go so they don’t stick to the pan.
We ate it with salmon.
Ana needed a little coaxing with the salmon tonight but she had a second serving of the veggies. Perhaps I should have cut the pieces a little smaller for her but she was happy to nibble her way through.
There’s even a bit leftover for lunch tomorrow!
