Masterchef Australia and Yotam!!
This is an unusual type of salad. It which was inspired by Yotam Ottolenghi s book Simple. When I saw him make a salad out of fresh cauliflower, I was like how can someone eat it raw. Although, It was wonderful to see a chef to make a meat-free recipe. He worked with local Aussie flavors in Master chef Australia. Ottolenghi cauliflower recipe challenged our thoughts of eating veggies. Sometimes its great to break the mould of day-to-day recipes.
We wanted to make a salad which would not any special ingredients. As many of our readers are based out of India, we wanted to create a salad which would not break a bank for many. Many global ingredients are now available in India. Thanks to all the food based channels now people want to try more cuisines. However, special ingredients need specific stores. Middle eastern cooking resembles Indian cooking and works on texture flavors and balances it perfectly. Middle eastern cauliflower salad will surprise you with its crunch and freshness. You can make it with simple ingredients. Special ones are usually available in metros or you need to order them online and wait. Then, one gets stuck with doubts that Oh this looks great, but who will go and buy? What if no one liked it after we made it?
Let's mark it for later. I do not have time for this salad recipe now.
However many don't realize, what we have is now.
Life happens now! So seize the moment and live it fully! Eat healthy and live well!
Love and 🙂
