Recipe Yield: Total time: 1 hour, 40 minutes | Serves 4
1 head cauliflower Olive oil 1 teaspoon Marash pepper, or crushed red pepper 1/2 teaspoon whole cumin Salt 1 cup freekeh 1/4 cup raisins 2 cups thinly sliced onion (about 1 onion) 2 tablespoons butter 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice 1/4 cup toasted slivered almonds 1 1/4 cups water 3/4 cup Greek yogurt 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice 1/2 clove garlic, minced 1/2 cup finely chopped parsley, plus some for garnish 1/4 cup finely chopped mint, plus some for garnish

Step 1 Set the oven to 400 degrees.

Step 2 Break the cauliflower into florets. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and combine the cauliflower, 3 tablespoons olive oil, crushed red pepper, cumin and 1 teaspoon of salt on it, and toss to coat florets evenly.

Step 3Roast, stirring at 10 minute intervals, until the florets are browned and tender, about 30 minutes. Set aside.

Step 4Soak the freekeh in water to cover, at least 10 minutes. Cover the raisins with warm water to soak.

Step 5Meanwhile, in a large pot, heat the onion, butter and 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are soft and brown, 15 to 20 minutes.

Step 6Drain the freekeh, rinse under running water and drain well again. Add the freekeh, cinnamon, allspice and almonds to the onions and cook, stirring, until the freekeh becomes aromatic, 1 to 2 minutes.

Step 7Add the water and 1½ teaspoons salt, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to the merest simmer, cover and cook until the freekeh has absorbed all of the water, about 15 minutes.

Step 8Remove the pan from the heat and set aside, covered, 5 minutes. Remove the cover and set aside 5 more minutes before stirring.

Step 9Stir together the yogurt, lemon juice and garlic, and set aside.

Step 1 0Add the parsley and mint to the freekeh. Drain the raisins and add them along with the roasted cauliflower and stir gently to combine.

Step 1 1Spoon the freekeh into a serving bowl or platter, garnish with dollops of yogurt and sprinkle over reserved parsley and mint. Serve, passing more yogurt on the side.
