Healthier Balls in Seven Minutes

Cauliflower Sauteed With Turmeric
This recipe is fast, easy, cheap, and good for your prostate. Obviously, omit the parmesan if you’re vegan.

What you need:
1 lb cauliflower
7 tablespoons vegetable stock or vegetable broth
2 tsp turmeric
3 tsp garlic paste (use fresh garlic if you’re not a lazyass like me)
2 tsp parmesan
2 tsp chopped cashews
1/2 tsp black salt
Pinch of black pepper

Cut the cauliflower florets into quarters. Put the stock / broth, black salt, turmeric, garlic, and black pepper into a skillet, mix it up and heat. Once the broth mix starts to steam, toss in the cauliflower and cover. Cook for seven minutes. Top with parmesan and cashews.

LOLOL. I loathe cooked cauliflower, so I sadly will not be making this for J.

HA! You know, I betcha it would work with broccoli, too. Just not as ball-friendly.

OooOOOooh, now there's a thought. And I just happen to have broccoli out on the garden that needs to be harvested.

I used to love broccoli when I was a kid. Now I can't stand it. Weird, no? Teddy loves it, though.

Naah, not weird at all. Food tastes change, and I think that it has a lot to do with biochemical receptors and how they increase or decrease in sensitivity.

Green beans, for instance. If I still tasted in them whatever it was that I tasted as a kid, I wouldn't be able to be in the same room without gagging. My dad didn't believe that the flavor could be that overwhelming, until I proved it rather graphically.

You must let me know what you think!

I can normally only stand cauliflower when it's roasted with olive oil and salt, but this sounds fantastic! Pretty sure I don't have balls, though. ;)

Balls aside, turmeric is SO GOOD for you. I'm halfway through writing a paean to the virtues of turmeric. LOL.

Oooo, I bet that would be really yummy if you put some of that green pointy cauliflower in it too- Kings Crown I think it's called.

Mmmmmm YUM!

That pointy stuff is crazy looking! I think I have a pic of a bunch of it in my twitpic somewhere.

It's pretty awesome, tastes about the same as regular cauliflower too- and is excellent pickled!

One local greenhouse owner calls it Madonna Cauliflower since it has such lovely points. ;)

Oh, yeah. That's gonna be good and I don't even have balls! There's a pair around here I'm rather fond of, though.
I'm not even sad for all of you who don't like cauliflower, because that means more fer me!

I'm planning on cooking this (or a variant thereof!) for Brian and Ted on our weekly tv nights. =D
