Cauliflower with Pine Nuts and Golden Raisins

There are some beautiful cauliflowers showing up at the farmer's market now and they sure make for a gorgeous meal.  This is a fairly easy side dish that tastes as good as it looks.  (I threw in couple pieces of leftover broccoli I had if you're wondering what the green is.)  Get any combination of white, purple, pale green or yellow cauliflowers.

2-3 Tablespoons EVOO
4 cloves of garlic, chopped
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 head worth of organic cauliflower florets, chopped
1/2 cup toasted pine nuts
1/4 cup golden raisins
10 fresh basil leaves, finely chopped
Salt and pepper, to taste

Put the EVOO, garlic and red pepper flakes in a large saute pan and heat over medium heat.  When garlic starts to become fragrant, add the cauliflower and saute about 10-12 minutes, stirring, until slightly browned.  Add the pine nuts and raisins and saute another minute.  Season with salt and pepper and toss in the basil leaves.  Serve immediately.


  1. Beautiful! thanks for sharing. I haven't seen purple cauli but I'll go hunting.

  2. Delicious! I don't normally like cauliflower, but this was great. I knew I'd find a way around my unhealthy disliking :).


  3. Hi

    Very beautiful blog. I have become your follower.

    I have also read The China Study and have been inspired by it. However what troubles me is the ban on milk products, since in India we use milk , curds (yoghurt) and Ghee( clarified butter) daily and these are considered health food when consumed in a balanced manner as per our ancient texts of Ayurveda. I also see that many of your recipes uses milk

    However what is your take on dairy products ?

  4. I try to minimize dairy products in my diet, but I do still eat them. Whenever possible, I use soy or almond milk, Daiya cheese, etc. My kids don't drink milk like most kids their age, but they do have cheese and yogurt. I strive to be vegan as I do believe that is the healthiest diet, and slowly I'm cutting out more and more dairy as I discover alternatives and learn to cook differently.
