Cauliflower kapamas

| April 21, 2014 | 10 Replies

The traditional Greek cauliflower kapamas [kapamás] is a budget-friendly cooking method which is based on cooking crunchy cauliflower florets with potatoes and tomatoes. Everyday cauliflower gets a flavorful kick from cinnamon and clove powder. 

Servings: 4

You need:

  • 2 tablespoons sunflower oil cauliflower kapamas
  • 250g potatoes, diced into large chunks
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • 350g cauliflower, cut into florets
  • good pinch of cinnamon powder
  • good pinch clove powder
  • 2 cups water
  • salt and pepper, to taste


Heat 2 tablespoons sunflower oil in a large sauce pan over medium-high heat.

Add the potato chunks and cook, turning, until golden brown, roughly 8 minutes removing with a spider spoon.

Turn the heat off. Then in a large pot sauté the onion until transparent.

Add the tomato paste, tomatoes, cauliflower, cinnamon powder, clove powder and water.

Season with salt and pepper, to taste and stir gently.

Cook until the cauliflower is cooked through, about 5 minutes.

mycookingsecrets tip:

You can serve this dish over brown rice, but cauliflower’s texture makes it more than able to stand alone.
