Garlic Cauliflower

You can spice these up adding crushed red pepper flakes to taste too.


  • 1 lb. cauliflower florets, cut in 1 inch pieces
  • 2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • Ad
  • 1/4 cup hot water
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


Heat olive oil in a large skillet and saute cauliflower and garlic for about 5 minutes. Add the water, salt, and pepper and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cook, covered, for 8 to 12 minutes or until cauliflower is tender.

Dear Deeli, I'd love it if you'd contribute simple recipes a hermit could cook. Or a busy Mom with two jobs. Or a single Dad raising kids.

What do you think?

Hi Tomatohanger.

I am not sure if you're being humorous or serious? Between 1/3 and 1/2 of the recipes I submit are easy peasy, nice and easy. It's all a matter of planning a weekly meal ahead of time if someone has a busy schedule or other issues. I don't know how much easier a recipe could be than this one. All it takes is cutting fresh cauliflower (which can be done ahead of time and stored in a container in the fridge) and then using ingredients on hand and then saute in a skillet.

If you would like I could come up with a detailed list of meal planning and prep tips and ideas for busy cooks to submit. I've had to come up with weekly meal plans because I became disabled a couple of years ago and half of the days of the week I have no more energy than to pull out the pre-planned and pre-prepared meal items and finish preparing them and that includes recipes I am trying for the first time.

Let me know what you think about coming up with detailed advice. :-)

P.S. Tomatohanger, Many recipes can also be completely made up ahead of time, refrigerated and then heated in the microwave or oven. ;-)
