Here is the latest video, shot at the beginning of November.  My work at the urban farm is now actually finished, so please disregard my comment about having a couple of weeks left in the season.

For this recipe, only the garlic came from the farm.  The cauliflower and cottage cheese were from the food bank.  I had the spices in my cupboard from previous needs.

Until next time…enjoy!

**Recipe:

water (enough to measure 1/4 inch high in a pan)
1 head cauliflower
1 clove garlic
1/2 tsp salt
1 TBS curry (you could use another spice in place of this)
1 TBS turmeric (you could use another TBS of curry or another spice in place of this)

Bring about 1/4 inch of water to a boil in a large frying pan. Add salt and trimmed and cleaned cauliflower florets. Cover and steam until as tender as you like (about 3 minutes for crisp-tender and up to 8 minutes for completely cooked, soft florets).  About halfway through cooking, press or dice garlic and add to the steaming pot.

Remove from heat, use a potato masher and mash the cauliflower/garlic until it looks like mashed potatoes.  Mix in spices and cottage cheese.

Serve hot or cold to taste.

**Nominal Nutritional Information:

Cauliflower is low in fat, low in carbohydrates but high in dietary fiber, folate, water, and vitamin C.

Garlic is rich in manganese, vitamin B6 and vitamin C, and is a good source of thiamin or vitamin B1, phosphorus, selenium, calcium, potassium, iron and copper.

Table salt is more processed than sea salt yet their chemical composition are no different from each other.  Most table salt also has added iodine, an essential nutrient that’s lacking in naturally occurring sea salt.   If you have high blood pressure, diabetes or chronic kidney disease, you are probably already getting enough salt from processed foods.

Curry is often a blend of turmeric, cumin and coriander. In order of magnitude, curry contains vitamins K, E, A, C, and the range of Bs.  Minerals in curry are: manganese, iron, magnesium, potassium, copper, calcium, phosphorous, zinc and selenium.  Small amounts of fiber and protein are also benefits offered by curry.

Turmeric contains magnesium, iron, potassium and vitamin B6, dietary fiber, phosphorous, selenium, calcium, sodium and zinc.
