Cooking – A Fun Activity and Nourishing Too
I was in the mood to do something fun and something different tonight, as to get rid of the things that have been weighing heavy on my mind.
COOKING- THE PERFECT CHOICE
Facebook has been posting plenty of Olive Magazine’s super easy, super tasty and super delicious recipes; the Cauliflower Steaks with sauce vierge has been calling my name, so I answered.
For dinner I wanted to make a veggie meal, sans meat, that tasted refreshing and light. I decided upon Olive Magazine’s Cauliflower Steak, Xorta-cooked endives, 2 pieces swiss cheese and sesame seeds. The variety and taste of all the ingredients satisfied my taste buds, and I enjoyed the process of cooking.
Prepping the ingredients of my yummy meal was enjoyable and so was chopping the veggies, which were natural and bold. The colors and freshness lured my eyes to the earth grown foods that are good for me and my family.
Dark green parsley
Medium green basil
Light green capers
Sunny yellow lemon
Bright cherry red tomatoes
Snow white shallots
Creamy beige cauliflower
Golden Olive oil
olive oil for frying
butter for frying
baby plum tomatoes 16, diced
shallot 1, finely chopped
small capers 1 heaped tbsp
basil a handful, chopped
flat-leaf parsley a handful, chopped
lemon ½, juiced
Heat the oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Cut 2 thick slices from the middle of each cauliflower and keep the rest to eat later.
Heat a little oil and butter in a pan then cook the cauli on both sides until golden. Transfer to a non-stick baking sheet and season. Roast in the oven for 10-15 minutes until tender.
To make the sauce vierge, mix all the ingredients with 5 tbsp olive oil and season. Take the steaks from the oven, spoon over the sauce and serve.
Cooking does not have to be time consuming or difficult. When your food is fresh and delicious you feel physically better and you look better, so carve out time to prepare and cook meals that satisfy and fuel your body!
