I love this little dish!
Am I talking about A) the food; B) the antique green bowl; or C) the cast-iron Staub mini pot?
All three, of course.
But today I'm especially kookoo about the Staub pot. I've been meaning to buy a pair of them ever since my first visit to Ubuntu in Napa, where I reveled in the cauliflower concoction and vowed to make it myself at home.
No, I still haven't attempted the cauliflower (but you could argue I'm a lot closer now that I have the pots).
This dish (that word!) was a casual layering of un-cased, sauteed Merguez sausage, some tomatoey/garlicky "cowboy caviar" made from homegrown eggplant, gently parboiled potato slices, and a topping of yogurt with a dash of allspice. I don't know what effect I was going for here; vaguely "Bazaar" (as in the marketplace, not the ladies' magazine).
It was a hit. These little pots (they come with lids) are the perfect size for one serving, and I am not lying when I say that I intend to eat lots and lots of un-rusty pots full of comfort food this fall and winter.
Imagine, already looking forward to winter.
