    •  Here's one of my favorites: (11+ / 0-)

      Cauliflower/Panko

      8 servings    2/3c = 1 serving

      6 cups cauliflower florets
      2 tablespoons water
      3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
      1/2 cup panko
      1 garlic clove, minced
      1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley (dried works also)
      1/2 teaspoon salt
      1/4 teaspoon black pepper

      Combine cauliflower and water in a microwave-safe bowl.  Microwave on high for 6 minutes or until crisp tender.  Drain.

      Heat 1-1/2 tablespoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.  Add panko to pan; cook 3 minutes or until toasted, stirring constantly.  Remove panko from pan.

      Heat remaining 1-1/2 tablespoon oil and garlic in pan over medium-high heat.  Add cauliflower; saute for 5 minutes or until golden, stirring occasionally.  Add panko, parsley, salt and pepper; toss to combine.

      200g flour
      200g unsalted butter
      largish pinch of salt

      let butter come to room temp
      sift flour over butter
      pinch together butter and salt until you get pea sized bits
      add water as needed until you get a nice firm dough - not unlike a good stiff cookie dough
      briskly knead using the turn and fold with the heel of your hand method
      wrap in cling wrap and refrigerate 20 minutes

      to roll out:

      lightly flour your work surface and rolling pin
      use the pin, not your weight to flatten the dough
      turn the dough as you roll it out to keep shape and even thickness
      if it cracks at the edges when rolling gently shape with your hands before turning and rolling again
      keep rolling and turning until it's about as thick as 2 quarters stacked
      you can roll it onto the pin itself to transfer it into your baking pan

      place in the centre of your baking pan (quiche pan, pie tin, whatever it is) and then gently fold to the edges and over the top edge completely.  leave that extra bit on the outside.  
      use a wad of dough to press into the edges to avoid holes and stretching, you want it to remain at that nice thickness all around

      bake for 10 minutes at 200C ~ 390F

      fill with deliciousness and bake again until deliciousness is done

      to get a nice finish, trim the excess off the edge after it's finished with a sharp knife

      eat deliciousness in pastry

      And we sail and we sail and we never see land, just the rum in the bottle and a pipe in my hand...
