Cauliflower Pilaf
This satisfying faux-rice pilaf not only tastes good, but also makes an impressive side dish.

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes.

1 large head cauliflower, cut into florets
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Pinch asafetida
1/2 cup vegetable stock
Sea salt
1/2 cup golden raisins
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf Italian parsley

Yield: 4 servings
Serving size: 1/4 of recipe

1. In a food processor fitted with the metal blade, process the cauliflower florets until they resemble the texture of rice (you can also grate them on the large holes of a box grater). Set aside.

2. In a medium skillet over medium-high heat, heat the olive oil. Add the asafetida and cook for about 45 seconds, stirring constantly until fragrant.

3. Add the cauliflower and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly until it softens slightly.

4. Stir in the vegetable stock and season to taste. Reduce the heat to low, cover and cook for 5 minutes more until the cauliflower is tender.

5. Remove from the heat and gently fold in the raisins, almonds and parsley. Taste and adjust the seasonings. Serve.

Note: For added color, substitute dried unsweetened cranberries for the raisins. You can also substitute hazelnuts or walnuts for the almonds.
