Ingredients

Instructions

SAUTÉ METHOD:

  1. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add cauliflower florets and sauté until lightly browned (about 7 to 9 minutes), stirring often.
  2. Add 1/4 cup water to pan, cover, reduce heat, and cook florets at a low boil until they are tender but not mushy (about 4 minutes). Watch closely and add a tablespoon or two of water if necessary to keep florets from scorching, but don’t add more water than necessary.
  3. Meanwhile, whisk together seasonings, crushed garlic, lemon juice, mayonnaise, and 3 tablespoons olive oil.
  4. When cauliflower is tender, remove from heat and stir in dressing mixture.
  5. Stir in remaining ingredients.

Serve warm.

STEAM METHOD:

  1. Bring water to boil in a large steamer pan.
  2. Add cauliflower, cover, reduce heat slightly, and steam florets until they are tender but not mushy.
  3. Meanwhile, whisk together seasonings, crushed garlic, lemon juice, mayonnaise, and 3 tablespoons olive oil.
  4. When cauliflower is tender, remove from heat and stir in dressing mixture.
  5. Stir in remaining ingredients.

Serve warm.

Notes

1. One small to medium head of cauliflower equals about 6 cups of small florets.

2. Be sure to cut your cauliflower into small florets so you have the right proportion of cauliflower to dressing flavor.

3. Oil amount in dressing can be reduced by one tablespoon if desired.
