Cauliflower or Kukkakaalilaatikko is a Finnish vegetable side dish with an interesting name. It is similar to an omelette and it is easy to make as well.
1Â cupÂ beer
3Â cupsÂ cubed rye bread
1Â headÂ cauliflower, cut into bite-sized florets
2Â tablespoonsÂ butter
1Â teaspoonÂ caraway seed
3Â cupsÂ extra-sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1Â teaspoonÂ dry mustard
1/2Â teaspoonÂ ground coriander
Ground black pepper
Preheat the oven at 350F.
One hour before cooking the cauliflower, pour the beer in a shallow bowl until it becomes flat.
Place the bread cubes on a tray and bake them for 15 minutes or until they are crisp. Do not brown.
In a skillet over medium heat, melt the butter and sautÃ© the cauliflower and caraway seeds until they are almost tender.
In a big bowl, combine the bread, cheese and cauliflower. Mix well. Place the cauliflower mixture in a casserole dish.
In another bowl, combine mustard, coriander, eggs, pepper and beer. Mix well or blend it in a blender. Pour it into the casserole dish with the cauliflower mixture. Bake it for 30-40 minutes until the tops start turning golden brown. Serve warm.
