6 cups cauliflower florets
2 tablespoons water
3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1/2 cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
How to Make It
Combine cauliflower and 2 tablespoons water in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH 6 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain.
Heat 1 1/2 tablespoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add panko to pan; cook 3 minutes or until toasted, stirring constantly. Remove panko from pan.
Heat remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons oil and garlic in pan over medium-high heat. Add cauliflower; sauté 5 minutes or until golden, stirring occasionally. Add panko, parsley, salt, and pepper; toss to combine.
This was a good way to make cauliflower a bit more exciting. My only critique is that the cauliflower was pretty dry, despite the 3 tablespoons of olive oil in the recipe. I didn't bother with the parsley as I don't love the flavor and thought it was included for color more than anything.
Similar to a recipe I've been making for years but easier. I like mine better though! Follow cauli cooking directions. Saute 1 finely chopped onion in oil, then add garlic and cauli, proceeding with CL instructions. At the end, add panko, parsley and 2 finely chopped hard boiled eggs and toss. Yummy!
I used fresh cilantro rather than parsley with the recipe and it turned out quite well. Cilantro is also often used in Israel, so the change is in keeping with the cuisine. I served this with couscous and a roasted chicken, stuffed with orange, onion and spices.
I was skeptical because cauliflower doesn't exactly rate high on my list of favorites but this dish turned out great. I added a little red pepper to kick it up a bit and served with honey glazed pork tenderloin and lima beans. Excellent meal and easy-cheesy!
This was an easy and tasty way to prepare fresh cauliflower. I used regular breadcrumbs instead of panko, and it still turned out really well. I'm not crazy about cauliflower in general, but I liked this!
