This evening I might be accused of cooking the most expensive idea of a cauliflower accompaniment to a meal imaginable, but in the circumstances it wasn't so bad. To start off, when my beloved ordered the shopping this week, Tesco were offering 2 large cauliflowers for the price of one, so I used some of the free one in this recipe. I like cauliflower a bit, but it's always struck me that it needs something else to make it a star. I'll often cook cauliflower cheese, but not as a meal in itself, instead as an accompaniment to a roast. I save any leftover cauliflower cheese and mix it with other leftover veg to freeze into patties that can later be baked or grilled as a quick addition to another meal. So tonight, I invented spicy saffron cauliflower which worked rather well. I added the remaining 1/3rd of a packet of saffron and a decent pinch of dried chili to the water I cooked the cauliflower in, turned it off long before the cauliflower was completely cooked and let the favours infuse. It certainly took the cauliflower to another level. I saved the cooking liquid on this occasion so I can try it out again tomorrow for completely free.
