The word “karnabahar” in Turkish literally means “spring blossoms for stomach”. I searched the dictionary further, it might also mean “flowering cabbage”. Either way it is a tasty vegetable full of vitamins and minerals. Cauliflower originated in the Mediterranean region, thus in Turkish cuisine there are many ways of serving it from salads to main dishes. This one is definitely a comfort food. Enjoy!
Notes: I save the stems of cauliflower, chop them into cauliflower rice in a food processor. This could be frozen and used later to make cauliflower pilaf.
Afiyet Olsun! Bon Appetit!
