Stir-Fried Cauliflower {side}

Stir-Fried Cauliflower {SIDE DISH} tasty and crunchy!   #cauliflower #side #sidedish #quickandeasyrecipe

This is one of my all time favorite side dishes.  As the Cauliflower is barely cooked and stir-fried, it is quick and crunchy, without losing too much of the essential goodness of the vegetable.

Best to use for this recipe is most definitely fresh Cauliflower florets, not frozen - you will only end up with a mushy business.

The dish also looks great with the browned pieces of Onion in between.  I normally have a savory and a sweet side for dinner.

And of course, I like colorful, or at least different color vegetables on my plate.


4 - 6 side portions

500g Fresh Cauliflower Florets
1 Large Onion, chopped
2 TB Butter
2 TB Oil
Salt & Pepper, to taste

1.) Cook the Cauliflower in lightly salted water for about 8 minutes - drain and keep aside.
2.) Heat the Butter and Oil in a medium pan - saute the Onion until soft and golden brown - add the Cauliflower and stir-fry for 2 - 3 minutes.
3.) Season to taste with Salt & Pepper.

Best served immediately.

Till later,

With A Blast
