This dish makes a wonderful side for holiday dinners. It's not only delicious & festive but it's quick & easy to make & can be prepared ahead to free your oven up for the main event, that big bird or roast! The original recipe was inspired by Giada di Laurentis but we've added our own spin!
This wonderfully hearty soup is actually best served the next day so if you have time, prepare the soup a day ahead & allow it to cool overnight. When you are ready to serve it, bring it back to a boil & allow it to simmer for 5 minutes before serving. It's fantastic served with slices of good bread with melted gruyere cheese. Just drizzle the bread with good evoo & salt. Bake at 350 degrees until the bread is toasted (about 5 minutes). Top with grated cheese & broil for 2-3 minutes until cheese is melted. Serve alongside steaming bowls of the soup.
This recipe comes from chef Alon Shaya at Domenica restaurant in New Orleans & is one of the most flavorful cauliflower dishes that I've ever tasted. The cauliflower is precooked in a seasoned poaching liquid which infuses it with flavor & then is roasted to make it crisp. While it may seem like a long process a lot of the prep can be done beforehand.
