"This is the only way you'll ever get me to eat cauliflower."
I improvised this recipe recently when I found myself with a head of cauliflower, some garlic and a highly intransigent wife.
Preparing cauliflower this way takes no more time and effort than simply steaming it, yet it scores several grades higher in style, flavor and class.
And hey, you may get a cauliflower-hater in your household to come around too.
Sauteed Cauliflower with Garlic
1 head of cauliflower
3-4 garlic cloves, sliced thinly into slivers
2 Tablespoons olive oil
a few dashes of salt and/or black pepper, optional
1) Steam cauliflower until about half-cooked.
2) Meanwhile, saute the garlic in oil over medium heat until light golden brown
3) Raise heat to medium-high, add the partially cooked cauliflower, season with optional salt or black pepper, and saute everything until the cauliflower begins to brown in places. Serve immediately.
Serves 4-5 as a side dish.
