Submitted by Gayle 11 June 2009



1 medium head cauliflower trimmed,1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil,1 mild dried chile optional,1/2 onion chopped,1 tablespoon slivered garlic,2 plum tomatoes fresh or canned diced,1 tablespoon sweet or hot pimentón (smoked Spanish paprika),Salt and freshly ground black pepper,Chopped fresh parsley leaves for garnish optional.,


. Put cauliflower and 1 tablespoon water in a covered glass bowl and microwave on high power until quite soft (a thin-bladed knife will penetrate with almost no effort), about 7 minutes. Uncover and let cool. Meanwhile, put oil in a large skillet or casserole over medium heat and add chile, if using, and onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onion softens, about 5 minutes.

2. Add garlic, tomato and about 1/4 cup of water, raise heat a bit, and cook until mixture is saucy, about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, crumble cauliflower (if it’s still hot, mash it with a potato masher or use a couple of knives to chop it up in the bowl) and stir it into sauce, along with pimentón, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until cauliflower is coated with sauce and hot. Taste and adjust seasoning, then garnish and serve hot, warm or at room temperature.
