A Vegetarian’s Christmas in Wales: Luxury Cauliflower Cheese

Hello, friends- how are the dwindling days of 2010 treating you? Myself they’re treating fine, though not exactly as planned. Perhaps you heard of the snow that blanketed Britain pre-Christmas, sending airports and train stations into disarray and scuppering the holiday plans of many? Well, I was among that many. My parents, due to fly into London for a family Christmas, Landmark-style, were forced to abandon their travel plans and remain in Canada instead. Read more…

In broad daylight: Cauliflower and Broccoli Cake

It’s no surprise that I take a lot of inspiration from the food bloggers around me. Given that there are so many of us, and their recipes are right at my fingertips (rather than all the way on the other side of the room, where my cookbooks live), it’s completely understandable that I turn to fellow bloggers when looking for new content. But in order to avoid the dreaded “recipe thief” label, I try to be a little clever when doing so. If I’m going to post a blogger’s recipe on Kitchenist, it’s usually one that I’ve adapted heavily, and either from an obscure or niche blog, or simply from an older, long-forgotten post. I’m hardly likely to go over to the world’s best-known blog and grab a recipe right from the front page, am I? Read more…

Lovely for Lunch: Spicy Cauliflower and Chickpea Stew

Spicy Cauliflower and Chickpea Stew

See those leftovers? That was last night’s dinner, and today’s lunch. Some meals are just like that; as soon as you put down your fork after the first go-round, you’re already looking forward to the leftovers. I admit to making certain things for dinner just because I love the leftovers so much- bizarre, no? Read more…

Deliciously (half) baked: Cabbage and Cauliflower Cannelloni

cabbage and cauliflower canneloni, baked

Stuffing pasta with cabbage seems like a half-baked idea, I know. For many of us, doing anything with cabbage seems a bit far-out. I used to hate cabbage- well, actually, I used to think I hated cabbage, which is something completely different. We didn’t eat it all that often when I was growing up, so I never really got the chance to decide for myself whether I hated it- but every kid hates cabbage, right? Read more…

Winging it: Homemade Orecchiette with Romanescu Cauliflower

pasta and romanescu cauliflower

This recipe is a summertime favourite of mine. I first made it last year for a quick weekend lunch and a way of using up leftovers. I like that the lack of any real “sauce” leaves the lovely colour and shape of the romanescu intact and visible. Of course, this would work with any shape of pasta, but I like it with orecchiette. The thick, chewy shape seems to hold its own against the cauliflower. Read more…

How to mess with a good thing: Cauliflower and Pasta Gratin

cauliflower pasta gratin

Usually when people begin to mess around with perfectly good recipes, it’s with the admirable aim of improving them: making them quicker to prepare, healthier, or just plain tastier. Not me, though. I confess to sometimes messing for far stupider reasons- laziness, boredom, the fun of messing. Read more…
