My children tell me that I “push” my food too hard to their friends. I guess I always want to “sell” whatever I am making. My girls already like it and are perfectly willing to let their friends “take it or leave it,” but, for some reason, I want them all to TAKE IT! I mean, it’s good. Why wouldn’t you want to eat something that’s GOOD?
I found this recipe for “Cauliflower Saute” while paging through magazines in my sister-in-law Mary’s lovely sitting room many years ago. We had been teaching together for a year or two, and she had introduced me to her husband’s brother, whom I decided almost immediately to marry. Sometimes Mary and I rode to school together, and after school we stopped in at her charming house to have tea. When I found this promising recipe, Mary copied it out for me on a little recipe card. Now it is a treasure as Mary died from cancer a few years after serving as a bridesmaid at my wedding.
Cauliflower Saute (I promise your kids will like it if THEY JUST TRY IT!)
- 2 medium head cauliflower
- 1/2 cup butter
- chopped parsley (optional)
- Remove outer leaves & stalks from cauliflower. Trim off any blemishes. Separate flowerets into small bunches & put into enough boinling water to cover.
- Cook cauliflower 15 to 20 min. or til just tender. Drain thoroughly.
- Melt butter in lge. skillet. Saute cauliflower until lightly browned. Arrange in serving dish. Sprinkle with parsley, if desired.
It’s sauteed in butter, people. It’s best when it gets a little browned. My kids gobble it up. So do I. Mmmmmmmm.
