Cauliflower Goat Cheese Terrine
  • Orange cauliflower is also known as: Cheddar Cauliflower
  • Origin and cultivation: discovered as a spontaneous mutation in 1970 in Canada; improved through breeding at Cornell University
  • Availability: year-round
  • Appearance: bright orange color
  • Flavor: like regular white cauliflower
  • Trivia: Pigment is from beta-carotene (converts to Vitamin A once you eat it), the same as in orange carrots. If you eat a lot of orange cauliflower, or carrots, or anything else with beta-carotene every day, your skin will turn orange, a condition known as carotenemia

1/2 head of orange cauliflower, cut in 1/2 inch florets
1/2 head of purple cauliflower, cut in 1/2 inch florets
12 ounces of soft goat cheese
4 handfuls of mixed greens
4 teaspoons of aged balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon of powdered mustard
1/3 cup of extra virgin olive oil
Salt

Steam the cauliflower for about 5 minutes until tender. Once done, rinse it in cold water, then put in ice water to stop from overcooking.

In a 4 inch terrine or mini-loaf pan, put in some cling wrap, leaving enough draping over the edges so you can cover the top later.

Put in 1/4 inch of goat cheese in the bottom of the terrine. Put in some of the cauliflower, then add scoops of more goat cheese, and more cauliflower. Smush everything together and keep repeating until you get to the top. Cover the top with the overhanging cling wrap, then put another terrine and/or some heavy flat weights (like a brick) on top. Then, put in the fridge and let sit under the weights for 24 hours.

Remove from the terrine pan and slice the goat cheese loaf into 1/4 slices.

To make the vinaigrette, whisk the mustard, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Then, add the olive oil and whisk well. Mix with the greens. Arrange the goat cheese slices beside the greens.
