"This was so.... good!" Hubby and I loved it. It's a keeper recipe. I used 2 large red onions for the amount of cauliflower I had. The timing for all was right on. I didn't have pine nuts and used chopped fine walnuts. It was a good alternative. Otherwise, I followed your instructions. Thank you for a "tasty veggie recipe".

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put butter in a heavy bottomed skillet over medium heat.
  2. Add onions and cook, stirring periodically, until the onions are a deep golden color, about 20 minutes (The longer the onion cooks the more frequently it needs to be stirred).
  3. Add balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper.
  4. Cook until most of the moisture evaporates and onions are deep brown, about 5 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, steam (12 to 15 minutes) or microwave (8 to 10 minutes) the cauliflower until tender but still firm.
  6. Put cauliflower on a platter and top with caramelized onions.
  7. Sprinkle with pine nuts.
