Here’s a nice alternative to steamed cauliflower. The tomatoes change things up a bit and add another dimension of sweetness and acidity to this healthy dish.

Ingredients

  • 4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 8 cups fresh cauliflower florets
  • 2 cups grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • 3/4 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Directions

In a large, deep 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat 2 teaspoons of the oil over medium-high heat. Add the cauliflower. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally and adding 1-2 tablespoons water, if needed, until the cauliflower is golden in spots and almost tender, about 6-8 minutes.

Add the remaining oil, tomatoes, garlic, salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring, until the tomatoes soften and cauliflower is tender, about 3 minutes.

Cauliflower Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age and damage.

Cauliflower Cooking Tip

Vegetables should typically be cooked as quickly as possible, as they can become bland and mushy, and lose vitamins and minerals.
