Tangy Cauliflower With Peanut Sauce

This is such a refreshing way to use cauliflower. I can eat the whole thing by myself...and sometimes I do. This is also nice with some chopped nuts sprinkled on top. UPDATE: On 01/14/08 I made this the way Rita describes....cooking it all together but upping the apple juice with 2 more tbsp It worked well and cuts out a step. Thanks Rita, for a lovely idea!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Over medium-high heat, cook cauliflower in small amount of water until just fork-tender. Drain & set aside.
  2. Combine rest of ingredients in small saucepan & bring to a low simmer.
  3. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture thickens enough to adhere to back of spoon.
  4. Toss sauce and cauliflower together & serve warm or at room temperature.

Tasty, but needed some salt. I added a tablespoon of soy sauce to the peanut butter mixture before tossing with the cauliflower. I liked it, but it seems like it's missing something I can't put my finger on.

This was yummy!! I used lemon instead of lime since that is what I had. I added an extra 2 T. apple juice and 1/2 t. curry powder. Thanks so much for sharing!! :O)

This was yummy. While not the best thing I've ever eaten, both my kids liked it which elevates it easily to 5 stars! I cooked the cauliflower in the sauce as suggested and while it never thickened, it had lovely flavor. This is one I'll use again. Thanks.
