sesame cauliflower

10 minute Clean Eating side dish easy enough for a weeknight dinner. This recipe serves 4 people and because it was so amazing we had no leftovers. Kids loved it! One night I doubled the recipe and made a second batch for my neighbour who brought me a roasted unmedicated chicken from Pomme (West Coast natural foods store). So, that was dinner. I think kids had pasta as well. You could serve this Sesame Cauliflower and Bell Peppers on top of brown rice, quinoa or any whole grain pasta for a vegan dinner. Kind of a stir fry.

I think it is a cauliflower season in California, so I have been buying a head of organic cauliflower ($5) on a weekly basis. It is easy to cook and kids usually like it.

If you have time or for a weekend treat, I would also recommend to try my Cauliflower Pizza and Cauliflower Breadsticks. And Cilantro Lime Cauliflower with Avocado is another easy weeknight dish I have on the blog.

    Blah! It smelled insanely delicious while cooking it, but it fell short on flavor. I will not make this again

    I’m currently on a Very restrictive diet that allows me to eat few vegetables, including cauliflower and bell peppers. I can also have soy sauce and a toso of Olive oil per day, so I was excited to finde and try this recipe. It turned out great (even without the sesame seeds). Thanks for making my diet a little easier today!
