Sweet and Savory Asian Cauliflower

My family is usually pretty good at eating whatever I cook for dinner with a smile on their face, but lately I noticed they were not touching the cauliflower. Even my husband wasn’t getting too excited about it. I can tell they were getting tired of it, but its a veggie that I love so I had to figure out a way to switch it up a bit. I thought about what types of food my family loves to eat and Asian foods came to mind. I thought “if I can make this cauliflower with an Asian style twist somehow I know my family will eat it.” I tried it and they did! YAY!

One of the ingredients used in this recipe is Coconut liquid aminos. If you aren’t too familiar with coconut liquid aminos, it has a little bit of an all seasoning taste to it, but it also has a bit of a sweet soy sauce taste to it as well. More sweet than salty. Coconut liquid aminos is a healthier alternative and our family loves using it with vegetables and meats. It’s really yummy! If you give it a try comment below and let me know.

Servings: 4-6     Prep time: 10 minutes     Cook time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. sesame seed oil
  • 1 head of cauliflower chopped
  • 1/2 cup coconut liquid aminos
  • 1 tbsp. garlic minced
  • 3/4 cup green onions chopped
  • 1/2 cup cilantro chopped
  • 1 tsp. ground or fresh ginger. If fresh be sure to grate ginger
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • Red crushed peppers (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste (I use Himalayan sea salt)

Instructions:

  1. To a medium high heated pan add olive oil, garlic and cauliflower. Sprinkle salt and pepper. Stirring occasionally, cook cauliflower for about 4-5 minutes.
  2. Add sesame seed oil, liquid aminos, green onions, ginger, sesame seeds and mix well. Stirring occasionally, cook cauliflower for another 4-5 minutes or until cauliflower is soft.
  3. Stir in cilantro and salt and pepper to taste
  4. Top with red crushed peppers (optional)

When my husband tried this he immediately asked if we could make the cauliflower like this again. I would say the cauliflower made a come back at the dinner table. That sure is a win to me!
