Baked cauliflower with broccoli puree

Cauliflower bread is a very simple food, easy to prepare, but at the same time tasty and nutritious.

I replaced the egg for the composition with chickpea flour, and instead of frying the cauliflower bunches in an oil bath, I cooked them in the oven. We take advantage of the fact that they do not need much time to prepare to avoid frying them. Anyway, lately I've gotten used to baking absolutely everything I used to fry before and they seem much tastier. And in addition it retains its properties and nutrients better.

I chose to serve it with a broccoli puree of an appetizing green and a salad of fresh vegetables.

INGREDIENT:

METHOD OF PREPARATION:

1. Cover the chickpea flour with water, mix it and leave it covered for at least half an hour. The water should cover the flour completely.

2. Wash the cauliflower, remove the leaves and spread it in bunches. Boil the bouquets in salted water for a maximum of 10 minutes. We strain them through a sieve, pass them through a stream of cold water and let them drain.

3. Season the chickpea flour with salt, pepper and a pinch of turmeric. The mixture should be similar to that of pancakes, if it is thicker we can add a little more water.

Separately put breadcrumbs in a bowl.

4. We take each bunch of cauliflower and give it first through the chickpea flour, and then through the breadcrumbs and finally we put it on a tray lined with baking paper. Repeat the operation until we finish all the bouquets, put the tray in the oven (preheated) at 180 g, about 10-15 minutes, or until the cauliflower bunches start to brown.

Serve the breadcrumbs in the oven with broccoli puree and seasonal vegetable salad!
