Ingredients for Cauliflower Side Dish

BOUQUET OF INGREDIENTS

The ingredients used in this recipe aren’t difficult to source, and only one or two may be new to you. I especially like the combination of the Chinese five-spice blend, the tamari sauce and the garlic chili sauce – these three ingredients give this dish that signature exotic taste.

SKILLET LOVE

Although you can make this sautéed cauliflower dish in pretty much any pan, I like making it in a skillet. I find that the heat distribution in a skillet sears the cauliflower quickly and evenly.

I also like how coconut oil performs when heated in an expansive pan. It cooks the vegetables at a high heat without smoking up the kitchen. You’ll also taste that hint of coconut in every bite. If you haven’t already, pick up some coconut oil to try – it really is delicious.

FLAVOUR POPS

When adding the almonds, scallions, garlic chili sauce and cilantro, make sure to keep those ingredients in motion. Stir constantly to prevent them from sticking to the pan and to ensure their flavours pop.

I also suggest you save that squeeze of lime until the second before you serve. It adds such a wonderful zing to those first bites.
