Cauliflower, 1 small unit
Canola oil, 4 tablespoons
for frying - as needed
Onion, 1 large unit
finely chopped
Tomato, 2-3 medium units
Tomato paste, 100 g
Water, 1 cup
Garlic, 4 cloves
peeled and cut

Parsley, 1/2 bunch


1. Cut the cauliflower into flowers, soak in water with salt, strain and rinse.
2. Put the cauliflower in a pot and boil with salt. After boiling, strain the water and take out the cauliflower (this is how I clean the cauliflower twice for fear of insects).
3. In a pan fry the onion in oil until golden, add the grated tomatoes, tomato paste and water.
4. Add the garlic and spices, mix and cover for 1 minute. Add the chickpeas, cauliflower and parsley, and cook until softened (about 20-30 minutes).
5. Eat with fresh challah or bread.
6. Bon appetite (:

Total time: 30-60 min

The nutritional value does not include the salt water for cooking the cauliflower. The preparation method also includes frying. Cooking is relatively short because the cauliflower is half-cooked due to the boiling with the salt water - those who do not boil it first should cook longer. Same goes for chickpeas - if they are not canned, soak the night before and cook for a long time until softened. The spices in the recipe are according to personal taste.
