I opened the refrigerator and see I have cauliflower that I bought last week so I start to think what can I create today?? Different, delicious, easy, simple, healthy. Okay I find it! Cauliflower pasta with garlic yogurt mmmm…. sounds good healthy smart
1 cup pasta
1-1/2 cups cauliflower cut into small pieces
1 cup greek yogurt
1 tbs extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp pressed garlic
On top (optional but yummy)
1 tsp hot pepper flakes
1 tsp olive oil
Cook the pasta with water and salt as it says on it’s own package.
Add olive oil and cauliflower stir for 1-2 min.
Add just little bit of boiling water and salt and cover the lid let boil 5-8 min until it gets soft but firm as pasta.
Combine cauliflower and pasta let them cool.
Combine yogurt and garlic take tablespoon fulls put on top of cauliflower pasta.
In small pot combine olive oil and hot pepper let them 1-2 min to heat then drizzle over the yogurt.
If you will ask is this salad really served warm?? Yes it is, it’s different and especially for winter time it’s warming and always nice to try something unusual isn’t it this is the way to learn end explore more.
While you are recycling every part of the food you are creating delicious, healthy dish!
When I’m buying veggies as today I did I removed all unused and old leafs or sometimes peels of vegetables as well you can use all kind of veggies like carrot peels beet leafs etc… but please be sure they are not poisonous or harmful for your health today the salad made from winter veggies.
And please don’t forget to soak the veggies 1 hour in vinegar water before you use them!
You can reduce or add more it depend on how much old and unused leafs and parts you have.
