Layered cauliflower

by | Sep 14, 2015 | Vegetable dishes

There are several layered dishes in the Hungarian cuisine, they are usually made with some kind of meat and vegetable like potato, sauerkraut, kale or cauliflower. Cauliflower is very popular in Hungary and often served in canteens or in the lunch menu of restaurants. If it’s not breaded, which is the most frequently used preparation, cauliflower is generally cooked as a soup or as a layered dish.

The traditional layered cauliflower consists of minced pork, rice, sour cream and cheese. My recipe is a lighter version containing ham and cheese and covered with bechamel sauce. Good news for low carbohydrate dieters that cauliflower is low in fat and in carbohydrates, but high in dietary fiber, folate, water, and vitamin C, possessing a high nutritional density.

Hungarian cottage cheese

This is what Hungarian túró looks like

You often ask me what kind of cottage cheese (or curd cheese or farmer's cheese - call it what you want) I use in the recipes. In Hungary the store-bought cottage cheese is dry and crumbly as you can see in the picture. So if a recipe calls for túró, I mean this type. If you can't obtain túró, you can try to make your own from whole milk. Click on the link below.

Metric system vs cup

In Hungary metric units are in use, all the recipes on this website are based on this system, so a kitchen scale is necessary. Since I’m not familiar with cup as a measurement unit, I convert grams to cups by using an online converter. The values in brackets, therefore, are only approximate volumes, so, please, double-check them before you start cooking.
