Cauliflower is meanwhile available throughout the year, thanks to different methods of growing it in different seasons. You can also find it everywhere in the world. Even high in the Himalaya on trekking in Nepal we saw local people growing cauliflower.
Did you know that you can also use the leaves of the cauliflower? the thicker parts can be perfectly used in stir-fry dishes. the leaves themselves can be perfectly added to a stew.
The inspiration for this recipe comes originally from Skinnytaste. An American blog with great ideas for healthy recipes. In Dutch I found a lot of background information on cauliflower on the site groentegroente.nl. English sites for cauliflower inspiration are asweatpeachef and recipetips.com.
