Cauliflower w/ Capers

I was pretty happy to come across this side dish as a flavorful recipe to have around when I'm watching my calories.

Yield: 4 servings

Prep Time:15 min

Cook Time:15 min


6 cups water
1/2 medium lemon
4 cups cauliflower florets (about 1 small head)
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 large cloves garlic, minced
3 Tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons capers, drained
1/4 teaspoon salt


1. Bring water boil in a large saucepan. Squeeze the lemon half into the water and add the lemon half to the water too. Add the cauliflower to the pan; cook 3 minutes. Drain; discard lemon half.

2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-heat. Add cauliflower to pan; cook 12 minutes or until soft, stirring occasionally. Add garlic; cook 30 seconds or until lightly browned.

3. Transfer cauliflower mixture to a large bowl. Add parsley and the remaining ingredients; toss well.

    Saw this recipe on your home page and caught my eye as my wife and I frequently enjoy cauliflower.

    I usually roast, sometimes with..sometimes without broccoli. I like this different spin from my prep. Always enjoy a taste of lemon…capers a plus to !

    Thanks for the alternative idea.
