Sweet & Spicy Steamed Cauliflower

If I were to pick one cruciferous vegetable that I have least liked for most of my life, it would be cauliflower. That was until I accidentally created this recipe. My friend, Zahura, recently shared her secret for sauteing eggplant without creating an oily splatter mess all over the stove-top. She uses an electric steamer by Presto called Kitchen Kettle Multi-cooker/steamer, which keep the oil right in the pot while cooking. Sounds exactly like something I needed for all of the Mediterranean cooking I do with eggplant. Hands down, best $25 I have ever spent on a kitchen tool.

So when it arrived, I didn’t have eggplant on hand, but I did have cauliflower. My curiosity got the best of me, and I decided to try the steam feature out on this bad boy, and in about seven minutes I had perfectly steamed cauliflower begging to be eaten. The only problem for me is that I had already seared it into my conscience that this vegetable was big time boring. So I decided to experiment with added flavor, and after a few spritzes of Coconut Aminos and a shake or two of red pepper flakes, it was a huge home run right out of the batter’s box. Seriously, I could not stop eating it. Shocker, I actually think it is my new favorite vegetable. It was that good!

Now, you don’t have to run out and buy a steamer to make this recipe. You can use your favorite way to steam vegetables, and in a matter of minutes, you’ll have a plate full of lightly sweet, slightly spicy, deliciously amazing cauliflower that may just become your new favorite vegetable too. Simple, quick, and gone in minutes.
