We made this at our first session of Diabetes Friendly Cooking. Wow, what a delicious way to give this seasonal vegetable great flavour!

1 med-large cauliflower, chopped

2 medium red onions, sliced

3 Tbsp vegetable oil

1 tsp dried thyme or 1 Tbsp fresh thyme

1 tsp minced garlic

3 Tbsp apple cider vinegar

3 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

¼ cup chopped Italian parsley

2 Tbsp shredded fresh mint

Salt and pepper to taste



Blanch cauliflower in plenty of boiling water, 3-5 minutes.

Drain and cool with cold water.

Drain completely and lay on a dry towel.

Heat oil in a heavy pan and cook onions, thyme and garlic slowly until gently browned and very soft.

Add vinegars and remove from heat.

Toss cauliflower in the pan with onion-vinegar mixture.

Add fresh herbs and season with salt and pepper.

Serve room temperature or cold.
