Ready In:




  • Heat a large heavy skillet over medium heat.
  • While it's heating, slice the cauliflower from top to bottom in 1-inch thick slices. Brush both sides with oil; salt and pepper to taste.
  • Place the cauliflower slices in the hot skillet, pressing them down. Cook for 3-4 minutes, until nicely browned; flip them over and cook till brown and tender. Remove from skillet and keep warm.
  • While the cauliflower is browning, slice broccoli in the same way as the cauliflower and brush with some remaining oil.
  • Cook the broccoli just as you did the cauliflower - till brown on both sides and tender. Remove from skillet & place on platter with the cauliflower.
  • Add remaining oil (about 2 tsps) to the skillet and sauté the garlic, stirring constantly, till lightly browned - 1-2 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel to absorb any remaining oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Arrange the broccoli around the outside of a serving platter and place the cauliflower in the center of the circle.
  • Sprinkle with garlic pieces & drizzle with the olive oil.
  • Serve warm.

  1. This was good and easy to make. I didn't have grapeseed oil or rice oil so I used olive oil. My family doesn't like their veggies crunchy, so I cooked the cauliflower and broccoli in the microwave then browned them.
