Cauliflower in Tomato Sauce

  1. First of all, find yourself a pan in which your whole head of cauliflower will fit, leaving an inch around the outside of it- this is important, otherwise it won`t cook in the way it`s supposed to.
  2. Wash the cauliflower and remove the outer leaves and thick stalks, leaving only the florets. Make sure that the head remains intact. The florets that fall off, cut them into really small pieces.
  3. Add olive oil into the hot pan, add the onions and the garlic that has been chopped, the chopped cauliflower stalk and slowly fry for 10 minutes until softened and with a little colour. Add the tomato can as well. Pour some hot water into the can and add that into the pan too.
  4. Add the red wine vinegar, double than the oil you used, some salt and taste it, see if it`s well seasoned.
  5. When it comes to a boil, reduce the heat and place the cauliflower into the pan, carefully push it into the tomato sauce. Half of it needs to remain out of the sauce and let it simmer at low heat for about 50 minutes.
  6. Cut 5 slices of bread into cubes and put them in the preheated oven at 350degrees. Select the ventilation setting. When they become golden brown, they are done. Take them out of the oven and place them on to a wood board and drizzle with olive oil.
  7. Take a bowl and add the tomato sauce in it, carefully, take the cauliflower from the pan and place it in the same bowl. Gently push it down into the sauce. Serve sprinkled with the chopped parsley leaves. And don`t forget the bread .
