Recipe by Hey Jude

We love cauliflower and I'm always looking for new ways to prepare it. I usually avoid anchovies but gave it a shot with this recipe and we really enjoyed them. I found this in the Chicago Tribune.

Had this last night and the whole family enjoyed. I didnt add any extra salt however because of the anchovies and capers and it was just salty enough.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine oil and anchovies in a skillet over medium-low heat; cook, stirring, until anchovies begin to melt into the oil, about 1 minute.
  2. Add garlic and red pepper flakes; cook until garlic softens, about 3 minutes; add cauliflower florets and 1/2 cup water; cover, cook on medium-low until the florets are soft enough to be pierced with a knife, but not so soft that they can be crushed, about 7 minutes.
  3. Uncover; raise heat to high, cook, stirring, until water evaporates, leaving a thin layer of syrup in the bottom of the pan, about 5 minutes.
  4. Add capers and parsley and season with salt.
