Delicious and quick vegetarian lunch or side dish
Pan roasted cauliflower with lemon, garlic, toasted pinenuts, currants, sumac, and feta
1 head Cauliflower, cut into florets
1/4 cup Olive oil
1 Lemon, zested and juiced
1 clove Garlic, thinly sliced
1/8 t Calabrian Chile flakes
2 T Pinenuts, toasted
2 T Currants
1/2 t Sumac
1/4 block Feta, crumbled
- Heat saute pan on high heat.
- Add oil and heat until almost smoking.
- Add cauliflower florets to the pan and brown on one side, turn and brown on other sides.
- Add garlic, salt and pepper
- Add chile flakes.
- Continue to cook until cauliflower starts to soften.
- Add pinenuts and currants.
- Add lemon juice and zest.
- When the cauliflower is tender, add the sumac and feta.

This makes a great side dish or main dish for lunch. If you omit the feta it is still delicious and makes this vegan. The combination of lemon, garlic, chile, and sumac is delicious. I hope that you try this easy and delicious dish!

This summer I spent a week in Provincetown, MA with a couple of my closest friends, Tom and Greg. We stayed in a cabin on the beach that Tom’s family has been staying in for 25 plus years. It was my first time in P-town, and it blew my expectations out of the water. The drive up to Massachusetts was tiring but along the way we stopped at the Cape Cod Chip Factory and Cape Cod Beer. One of the most memorable moments of the trip was as we were pulling into town we stopped at a little place called PJ’s Restaurant for a mouthwatering lobster roll.
The lobster roll consisted of a split top bun, toasted with butter, covered in large chunks of lobster meat, coated in thick melted butter, a touch of salt, and lemon. It was HEAVEN. I personally do not eat mayonnaise so a lobster roll with butter is the king for me. This decadent roll didn’t last very long, but I am still thinking about months later and that’s my Monday Craving.
