Steamed Cauliflower

I really don’t understand people who hate broccoli or cauliflower. They both can used used as part of a salad, veggie tray, soups, casseroles or even for pickling!

Today, I’d like to share a simple and tasty version of cauliflower that’s enjoyable in any of the seasons.

Steamed Cauliflower
(serves 6)

1 head of cauliflower
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
3 teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 cup chopped fresh chives

Place your cauliflower into the steamer and it should be “al dente” in 15 minutes. You can check for doneness by forking the stem part. There should be some resistance and it should be ready.

In a large bowl, add olive oil,  lemon juice and salt . Whisk to incorporate and toss your cauliflower with the dressing.

Adjust seasoning, add chives.

NOTE: You can use broccoli instead or use both for a colourful side.
