If you are looking for a new Cauliflower side dish, do try this very tasty, quick and easy recipe for Stir-Fried Cauliflower – simply the best !
This Stir-Fried Cauliflower is one of my all time favorite side dishes. As the Cauliflower is barely cooked and stir-fried, it is quick and easy to make.
And without losing too much of the essential goodness of the vegetable. The crunchiness is totally awesome, especially in a side dish, which usually are not crunchy.
Best to use for this recipe is most definitely fresh Cauliflower florets. Not frozen as 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 seeing as the starch is normally white as well (potatoes, rice, pasta), the bit of browned onion helps balance my colors on the plate.
Of course, I like colorful, or at least different colored vegetables on my plate ! My son does not really like cauliflower all that much, but he always enjoys this side dish.
I grew up with cauliflower being served with cheese sauce over – that’s it ! Even during my first couple of years of married life, I kept on making the same cauliflower with cheese sauce as a side dish.
However, we all grow up (some or other time!) and start to experiment with food. Now I have quite a lot of cauliflower recipes.
Depending on the main dish, it will determine how I cook an serve the cauliflower if it is on the menu that day.
Quick, easy and a most delicious side dish you can make at last minutes notice !
