Ingredients

  • 1 Teaspoon whole cumin seeds
  • 6 Cups cauliflower florets
  • 1/2 Cup water
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 Teaspoon ground turmeric
  • Salt, to taste

Directions

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add cumin and toast, shaking the skillet often, until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Add cauliflower, pour water over the top, and immediately cover skillet. Reduce heat to medium and cook, tossing the cauliflower halfway through, until tender and water is mostly absorbed, about 10 minutes. Add oil, turmeric and salt, toss well, and serve.

Spice Shopping Tip

Spices and dried herbs have a shelf life too, and lose potency over time. The rule of thumb is, if your spices are over two years old, it's time to buy some new ones.

Spice Cooking Tip

Toasting whole spices before using them intensifies their aroma and flavor.
