Spiced Cauliflower

Spiced Cauliflower

PTG

"I grew up with cauliflower boiled and served with buttered crumbs. Although I love melted butter, the two never melded for me, and cauliflower remained my least favorite vegetable until I discovered this recipe from Indian friends. I omitted the chile and prepared it for my brother who cannot tolerate any hot spice, and he raved about it. It's flavorful, and the microwave finish leaves the cauliflower slightly crisp, which we prefer."

Absolutely delicious seasoned with cilantro of course

it's actually quite bland given the complexity and fresh ingredients.... not worth the effort.

Love, love, love it! So flavorful and easy too. I was out of mustard seed so I just added about 1/8 tsp ground mustard to the onion sautee just before adding the cauliflower. Served with Fast Sa...
