Sesame Cauliflower and Bell Peppers

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 recommend to try my cauliflower pizza crust recipe.
