Sauteed Cauliflower

Sauteed Cauliflower

Last Updated on

This was our dinner last Tuesday.   When I went to the store to pick up some produce to prepare dinner, I saw this fresh small head of cauliflower.  I had not prepared cauliflower in more than 3 months and the dinner menu was set.  I knew Mr.U would not be thrilled about it but once in a while I ought to cook what I crave for, right?  Anyway, the other item was his favorite so I was safe with the menu for the night.

I usually cook cauliflower with tomato, lima beans or green peas and sometimes I also throw in a few pieces potatoes and beans.  But that day, I did not want to add any vegetables to it and wanted pure, only cauliflower fry.  This is a quick and easy recipe that can be prepared under 20 minutes.  I present to you, sautéed cauliflower or cauliflower fry!  This goes to Twenty-20 cooking event and Cooking with Seed: Cumin, an event started by Priya.
