Let the Turkey Trot: Stuffed, Spiced Whole Cauliflower
“I can’t run in the Turkey Trot”, my 7 year old daughter looked up at me, anxiety writ all over her chubby face. She was referring to the annual Thanksgiving race, when hundreds of children were released from elementary school to run around the field and loop through the nearby woods.“Why ever not?” “The winner takes home a turkey. But we’re vegetarians!”
I looked down at her stubby legs, encased in the impossibly cheery stripes of Hanna Andersson leggings. For the first (possibly the last) time, I was less than brutally honest about my children’s abilities, or lack thereof. Hiding a smile, I assured her that if she won, we would donate the turkey to the local Food Pantry so the poor would not go hungry. She was so relieved that I resolved to make as grand a stuffed non-turkey as I could. Since that Thanksgiving, many years ago, I’ve perfected the stuffed cauliflower, based loosely on Julie Sahni’s recipe from Classic Indian Vegetarian and Grain Cooking.
