Skillet Cauliflower Recipe
Did you ever think there was something missing in your life? Have you considered cauliflower?
1 head CAULIFLOWER (cut into florets)
1 bulb of GARLIC (finely chopped)
1 cup ONION (chopped)
½ cup PEPPERS (sliced)
3 Tbsp OLIVE OIL
zest of 1 LEMON
2 Tbsp LEMON JUICE
SALT and PEPPER (to taste)
WATER (as needed)
In a large skillet, heat olive oil on medium high heat and add cauliflower florets. The oil should be hot enough to sizzle when the cauliflower hits the pan. Sear the florets for 3-4 minutes —keep them moving enough not to burn, but let them rest long enough to get a nice seared edge where possible. The florets will soak up the oil pretty quick—add water sparingly when needed.
Reduce the heat to medium and add the onion. Mix and give the onion a minute head start before adding the garlic and peppers. Add salt to taste and continue sautéing the vegetables for 1-2 minutes.
Then add ¼ water, cover, and cook 2 minutes.
After 2 minutes, add black pepper, lemon zest and juice, mix, and remove from heat.
At this point, all of your cauliflower dreams will be coming true.
