HHDD #27 Cauliflower & feta revisited

Time to enter some foodblogevents again, I always find them very inspiring. First up, Hay Hay its Donna Day #27, hosted by Priya from Akshayapaatram & facilitated by Chez Us. This time the theme was summer salads and I picked a cauliflower & feta salad recipe from Donna Hay as inspiration.

The original recipe of course was a salad. I gave it a little spin. I added some couscous to the mix and created a kind of mash together with the cauliflower & bread. It turned out to be a simple but tasty dish.

HHDD cauliflower feta revisited

Ingredients (serves 4)

500 grams cauliflower
200 grams couscous
100 grams feta
vegetable stock
30 grams green olives
3 slices of white bread


First cut the cauliflower into peaches and blanche it in a cooking pot with boiling water. When finished blanching drain them and put the peaces of cauliflower in a baking dish with some olive oil. Put this dish for 15 minutes in a preheated oven of 180 degrees celcius. After that add the peaces of bread and keep it in the oven for about 10 minutes. Put the cauliflower & bread in a foodprocessor which will turn it into kind of a mash.

In the meantime prepare the couscous instantly, I used vegetable stock for this. I mixed the couscous together with the cauliflower mash. At the end I served it with the olives & feta.

    Oh my gosh this is just beautiful! And you know I’ve been having some real cauliflower cravings lately because it’s starting to arrive at our local farmer’s markets. Beautiful!
