Curried Cauliflower Gratin


I love one-pot meals. And in the past have tried the Summer Squash Gratin and the Cabbage Casserole very successfully.

I had a large head of cauliflower and wanted to try something new. I scoured the web for an appealing recipe, but in vain. In the end, I improvised and made this dish. Actually, I ended up making this two ways using two different recipes. Here is the first one.

Ingredients:
1/2 large head of Cauliflower, cut into florets
1 red or orange bell pepper, sliced
10-12 cherry tomatoes, sliced
1/4 cup pickled sliced jalapeno peppers
1 cup bread crumbs
3/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1 cup milk
1-2 tsp curry powder
1 tbsp olive oil
a few red pepper flakes
salt to taste

Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees F.

c1Place a large pan on the stove on medium low flame. Add oil, cauliflower, salt and curry powder. Fry lightly for 6-7 minutes. Add milk and continue to cook for another 5-6 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a bowl mix bread crumbs and cheese. Season with some salt and nutmeg.

c2Transfer the cauliflower, along with the milk to an oven safe casserole dish. Add sliced tomatoes and pickled peppers. Top with bread crumbs mix. Can sprinkle some red pepper flakes.

c3Bake for 15-20 minutes. Serve warm.
