Crazy for Cauliflower Recipe

Change Your Child into a Cauliflower Lover

This recipe is so delicious and my entire family loves it.  The first time I made it, I was astonished to watch all three of my boys devour it. If your child dislikes cauliflower, this recipe will help to change your child into a cauliflower lover. I was so happy to find a recipe that is so healthy and also very  tasty.  For so long, I had to coax my kids to eat cauliflower, but not any more : ) Jonny Bowden writes about cauliflower in his awesome book entitled, The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth.  He talks about how cauliflower is a member of the brassica family and contains compounds like indoles that have given this vegetable a reputation for being a powerful cancer fighter.  It also contains sulforaphane which is a potent antioxidant and stimulator of the natural detoxifying enzymes in the body.  A short time after being eaten, sulforaphane enters the bloodstream and charges the bodies antioxidant defense systems.

Ingredients

1 head organic cauliflower (pieces removed from stems and washed)

1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder

1/2 teaspoon ginger powder

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

1 tablespoon Coconut Aminos Teriyaki Sauce

1 tablespoon ghee (clarified butter)

Directions

Boil cauliflower for 7 minutes ( or until desired tenderness is reached).

Drain cauliflower and set on a plate.

Warm up a stir fry pan with a tablespoon of ghee (check out the benefits of ghee on this past post) and melt it.

Add the tumeric, ginger, and sea salt into the pool of melted ghee.

Add the cauliflower to the stir fry pan and mix it all around in the spices, coating each piece as well as possible.

Sprinkle each piece with Coconut Aminos Teriyaki sauce.

Enjoy and watch in amazement as your family gobbles this down : )

On a funny note, my son Kyle thought the title of this blog post should have read, “The ONE way  to Eat Cauliflower without Throwing Up or Fainting.”  LOL.
