Cauliflower CAKE??? That's what I thought when I read the recipe title from Ottolenghi's newest cookbook, Plenty More. But I know from experience to trust Ottolenghi - if he says a recipe is worth making, it's definitely worth making. And he was right, once again. This savoury "cake" (really more like a quiche) is irresistibly delicious!
All I had in my fridge was a head of cauliflower and some uninspiring staples.... and somehow this was transformed into an incredibly flavourful vegetarian main dish. I think that's the true beauty of this recipe - how simple it is. And how unexpectedly flavourful it is.
(please excuse the off-colour, grainy cell-phone photo above. I wasn't expecting to post this recipe and didn't plan ahead. Believe me, it tastes much, much better than it looks!)
