Cauliflower Spiced Tartare

December 30, 2017


Cauliflower looking fancy. 


While cooking vegan dishes over the holidays I realise that most of them looks like a sloppy mess except for the fact that they are colourful. But if I were to be particular about presentation and making veggie look sexy, there's a lot to think about plating. 


For this cauliflower "tartare", it can be served as a side or appetiser before something heavy for a meal. People will love the fibre!



- 1 head of cauliflower 

- 2-3 red and green chillies (be very careful while handling them, do wear a glove)

- 1 teaspoon of minced garlic (from a jar)

- 1 salt & pepper

- 4-5 stalks of long beans



1. Chop the cauliflower into mushroom size florets. Cut the chilli and make sure the seeds are taken out

2. In a pot of boiling water, cook the cauliflower until its soft

3. In a pan, stir fry the cauliflower and chilli with minced garlic and salt & pepper until cauliflower is slightly charred

4. Blend the cauliflower until it becomes grainy (just 1-2 pulse for 5 seconds each is enough)

5. Using a cake mould, press the cauliflower mixture until it's tight 

6. Flip it and release onto a plate

7. Cook the long beans with salt & pepper and garlic

8. Place the long beans on top of the cauliflower, drizzle your favourite sauce around
