At the Adelaide Show Grounds Farmers Market there where stacks of antioxidant greens, bitter & leafy.
It amazing mother nature knows just what we need & when , but who listens to their mother right.. Well eventually , as we get older & presumably smarter , or just more mortal we realize that mum was right. Never will we let her know. Maybe in a weak moment... Ours , not theirs.
I was a horrid child, you can tell!
The point , yes greens brilliant , so i cooked a devastating amount of the stuff to show how simple, how easy , how much you did not need meat, cheese & starch to put together a meal..... Just an idea mind you.
Please add regional organic dairy, beef, bacon or eggs if desired.

STEAMED CAULIFLOWER W RUSTIC SALSA VERDE .
One whole Cauliflower
Spike the core a couple of times in the centre, from underneath, so it cooks more evenly.
Steamed in an inch or 2 of drinkable water with a sprig or so of parsley, pinch of macro biotic sea salt.
It looks like steaming white brain when drawn from the pot.
While its steaming :
Wash the salt off a good handful slated cappers.
Chop them with 3 cloves of local garlic.
Then chop in to that bundle a bunch of flat leaf parsley.
Chop , mix together.
Place in a bowl .
add a grind of fresh white pepper.
Add good Extra Virgin Oil to bring together.
Let stand, so flavors amalgamate.
Then pour over your hot , steaming cauliflower..... Let marinate.
Serve hot or cold, as antipasto or veg accompaniment.
Fab with a shave of parmesan...
