Cooking cauliflower stewed with vegetables:
Step 1: Prepare the vegetables.
Separate the cauliflower with a knife from the thick stem, then fold it in a colander and rinse with warm running water. Dry. Disassemble the cauliflower into very small inflorescences, pruning too long and thick stems.
Peel the garlic cloves and cut into thin slices.
Bell peppers clear of seeds, halve and cut all whitish partitions from the inside. Rinse the vegetables, dry them, and then chop the peppers into small cubes or thin strips.
Place tomatoes in a pot of boiling water for 30 seconds, then cool sharply. This will allow you to easily peel the tomatoes from the skin. After peeling, chop the tomatoes into cubes or slices if your vegetables are small.
Rinse the greens, cut off the stems, and dry the rest with towels and chop into small pieces.
Peel onions and cut into thin half rings or small cubes, I leave it at your discretion.
Step 2: Stew the cauliflower with vegetables.
In a saucepan, heat the vegetable oil and fry the onion and garlic in it until soft. Then add slices of bell pepper, mix everything and simmer over medium heat for 5 minutes.
After, put the slices of tomato in a saucepan, sprinkle everything with salt, black pepper, and season with basil and oregano. Mix and simmer again 5 minutes.
Add to other vegetables cauliflower inflorescences and greens. Stir, cover and simmer more 10-15 minutes or until cabbage is ready. Once it becomes soft and changes color, remove the pan from the heat and serve the finished dish to the table.
Step 3: Serve the cauliflower stewed with vegetables.
Cauliflower stewed with vegetables is good as a lunch, this dish can be given even to children (in this case, use less spices). And, if you still want to add something more edible and satisfying than vegetables, sprinkle the finished dish with goat cheese or mozzarella, however, you can just pour each serving with fat sour cream. For those who do not perceive any dinner without meat at all, you can offer a couple of ham sandwiches to this vegetable stew.
