Harissa Rubbed Cauliflower | Mint | Yogurt | Pickled Raisins

Chef Henderson knocked it out of the park with this stunning dish featuring Boat Street Pickles Pickled Raisins. Moroccan inspired, this dish is packed with flavor: spice from the harissa rub on the cauliflower, a sweet and tangy kick from the pickled raisins, and a freshness to cut through it all with fresh mint. But in this case, a picture really does say 1000 words.
