  • 2 T red wine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 2 t Dijon mustard
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1 medium head cauliflower, broken into florets
  • Ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 large onion, sliced thin
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme (can substitute 2 teaspoons of dried thyme)

1. In a small bowl, whisk together the tomato paste, mustard, water and vinegar.

2. In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the cauliflower and onion. Season with salt and pepper and dust with cinnamon. Stir well and heat until the onions are softened, about 5 minutes.
