Cauliflower, all spiced up! Yum! This came from Gourmet Magazine.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large skillet, heat the oil over moderate heat until it is hot but not smoking; cook the mustard seeds, covered, stirring occasionally, until the popping subsides.
  2. Add the gingerroot and the turmeric and cook the mixture, stirring, for 30 seconds.
  3. Add the cauliflower, stirring to coat it with the oil, and 1/2 cup water and steam the mixture, covered, adding more water a few tablespoons at a time if it evaporates, until the cauliflower is just tender, about 6 to 10 minutes.
  4. Season the cauliflower mixture with the lemon juice, salt, and pepper and stir in the coriander, if using.
  5. Enjoy!

Yum! is right this recipe adds a unique flavor to the cauliflower but it compliments the veggie it does not overpower it. I used black mustard seedsand only 1 tbsp of coriander - Company's coming and guess what they will be served? Thanks Sharon123 for another keeper
