Bbq 'Tater Chip Cauliflower :-)
I kid you not, this totally tastes like bbq potato chips!! I've made it about 3 times now and it's a mighty delicious side dish every time. When my Auntie J was here for a visit we ate it with baked salmon and my roasted lima bean recipe...but it'd be good with any number of things. I'm salivating just typing this up, so hie thee to the market and procure all the necessary fixin's. This is a good one.
Paprika Sauteed Cauliflower:
(from Seasonal Ontario Food's blog)
1/2 a head of cauliflower (~3 cups cut up into small florets)
2 cloves of garlic, peeled and minced
1 tablespoon canola oil
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
1 1/2 teaspoons sweet Hungarian paprika
1/2 teaspoon hot smoked paprika
Steam cauliflower florets until just tender.
Combine the paprikas and salt in a medium to large bowl.
While the oil is heating in a large non-stick skillet on medium-high, toss the cauliflower with the salt and paprikas. When the oil is hot, add the cauliflower to the pan. Sauté for about 5 minutes, until the cauliflower is hot through and begins to crisp and brown at the edges. Add the garlic to the pan after the cauliflower has cooked for about 2 minutes.
I've had to add a little extra oil in at times, but probably because I usually end up using more than 3 cups of cauliflower.
