Recipe Type: garnish, cauliflower, broccoli, floret, tomato
Prep Time:15 min
Total Time: 15 min
Yield:1 tomato cup garnish
1 Red Tomato, medium sized
2 cauliflower florets
2 broccoli florets
Salt and pepper, to taste
Cut cauliflower and broccoli into florets small enough to fit into a hollowed out tomato. Steam the cut vegetables until tender crisp; drain and put into an ice water bath to stop the cooking. Drain again, season with salt and pepper.
Use a utility knife to make 1/2-inch zigzag cuts around the middle of a tomato, gently twist the halves to separate. Remove the tomato pulp from the center leaving a 1/4-inch wall making a cup. Fill with cauliflower and broccoli florets and serve as a garnish.
Put one on each plate with a main entree, or salad or lunch.
