“ We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations. ” — Anais Nin

Shaved & Curried Cauliflower Salad 

  • 1 extra-large head of cauliflower
  • 1 cup cooked garbanzo beans
  • 1/2 cup dried apricots, quartered
  • 1 cup celery leaves
  • 1 cup flat leaf parsley leaves
  • 1/2 cup mint leaves
  • 1 orange, for juice and zest
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 2 Tbsp preferred curry powder
  • Red pepper flakes
  • Olive oil
  • Salt

 

Preheat the oven for 400′ F. Using a mandoline slicer, shave the cauliflower into large pieces. Place on a baking sheet and coat with olive oil, curry powder, juice of half an orange, and orange zest. Bake for 20-30 minutes until the edges brown and crisp. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

In a large bowl, combine celery leaves, parsley, mint, shallots, and apricots. Mix in warm cauliflower and dress with additional orange juice, a lug of olive oil, and a bit of salt to taste. Serve warm or at room temperature.

    Sometimes we realise we haven’t grown at all – when we play like children, mindlessly and freely. It’s the most reassuring feeling I can think of. Have you seen Interstellar? This quote reminded me of it a bit. Gorgeous salad, perfect between some needed indulgence.

    this salad sounds really lovely. i’ve just started getting along with cauliflower — i mean, i’ve really never been into it until recently. cooked cauliflower is so lovely though — i love the idea of a cooked cauliflower salad! i can’t wait to try this!

    This is beautiful! And I love that the cauliflower is cooked; sometimes raw brassicas are just too “brassy”, if you know what I mean? Thanks for the inspiration!

    This is coming with me tonight to a writers potluck, but I think it will highlight some of the yuzu I have stockpiled in my garage for yuzucello. Simple pleasures. Thanks.

    I love cauliflower salad. cauliflower soaks in warming spices so well. And I am so happy to see someone else using celery leaves! I always do-they have so much flavor.
