 Ingredients List

  • ------------------------------THE CAULIFLOWER------------------------------
  • 1 lb Cauliflower; trimmed
  • Anise seeds; large pinch
  • -tied in a small piece of
  • -cheesecloth
  • 1 ts Salt


2 Fresh serranos OR any hot
-fresh green chiles
3 Sprigs fresh cilantro;
2 tb Finely chopped white onion
1/2 ts Salt; or to taste
1/2 lb Tomato; broiled and skinned
2 Avocados

2 oz Queso fresco

Rinse the cauliflower well and divide it into florets. Bring a large pan of
water to a rolling boil. Add the cauliflower, aniseed, and salt and cook
until just tender - about 5 minutes after returning to the boil. Drain and
let cool.

While the cauliflower is cooling, make the guacamole. Crush the chiles,
coriander, onion, and salt to a paste. Add the tomato and blend a second or
so longer. Skin and mash the avocados until smooth. Add the blended
ingredients and mix together well.

To serve as a vegetable dip, place the guacamole in a small bowl and
garnish with the crumbled cheese. Put the bowl onto a large platter, on
which you have arranged the cauliflower. To serve as a vegetable dish or
salad, place the cauliflower in one layer on a shallow serving dish. Mask
with the guacamole and garnish with the crumbled cheese.

Notes: Coliflor en Aguacate, Cauliflower in avocado sauce, adapted by Diana
Kennedy from Recetas de Cocina, a 1911 cookbook, will be an unexpected
vegetable accompaniment for the grilled spare ribs, Costillas de Puerco a
la Parilla.
