Greek Braised Cauliflower (Recipe)


✅ ½ cup extra virgin olive oil (I used Kasandrinos)

✅ 1 cauliflower cut into florets

✅ 1 onion, finely chopped

✅ 2 garlic cloves, grated

✅ 1 cinnamon stick

✅ Salt and black pepper, to taste
✅ ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, optional

✅ 1 (16 ounce) can tomatoes, pureed

✅ ¼ cup water

✅ Feta cheese for serving, optional


1️⃣ Warm the oil in a pot or wide skillet over medium heat.

2️⃣ Add the cauliflower florets and cook them for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. They do not have to become golden brown on all sides.

3️⃣ Remove the cauliflower and set on aside on a plate.

4️⃣ Cook the onions in the oil for 10 minutes or until soft and golden. Add the garlic and warm through about 30 seconds taking care not to burn it.

5️⃣ Add the pureed tomatoes, the cauliflower, cinnamon stick, and all of the remaining seasonings and spices. Bring to a boil, cover the pot and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook until cauliflower is tender. About 25 minutes.

6️⃣ Remove lid and increase the heat if necessary and cook 5 more minutes or until the sauce thickens. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed.

7️⃣ Serve topped with some feta cheese.
