Simple Cauliflower Recipe… one of my kids’ favorites!


1 large head organic cauliflower
2 tablespoons of olive oil
A couple pinches of sea salt
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 small bunch of chives, chopped
Zest of one lemon
Lots of freshly grated Parmesan!
Sea salt


To prep the cauliflower, remove any leaves at the base and trim the stem. Now cut it into tiny grape- sized baby trees (tiny florets). Make sure the pieces are relatively equal in size, so they cook in the same amount of time. Rinse under running water with veggie spray, and set aside.

Heat the olive oil and fine grain salt in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When hot, add the cauliflower and stir until the florets are coated. Wait until it gets a bit brown on the bottom, then tos

the cauliflower with a spatula. Brown a bit more and continue to saute until the pieces are deeply golden – all told about six minutes. In the last 30 seconds stir in the garlic.

Remove from heat and stir in the chives, lemon zest, and dust with a bit of freshly grated Parmesan cheese and a pinch of sea salt (if you have it on hand). Serve immediately.
