Cauliflower

When I was a kid I used to hate Cauliflower, then my mother made this dish and ever since I always serve Cauliflower this way and everyone loves it.  Even my friends that say they do not like Cauliflower like it.

Cauliflower can easily be a  substitute for starchier foods such as potatoes and rice or as a side vegetable.

On top of that Cauliflower is a very good source of fiber. It is an excellent source of Vitamin C, a very good source of Vitamin K and folate, and a good source of Vitamin B6 and potassium.

In addition, cauliflower is one of the cruciferous vegetables, which have been shown to have anti-cancer properties. It also has a fairly high level of antioxidant phytonutrients on a per-calorie basis.

This is a very easy recipe.  Try this out and let me know what you think?

Cauliflower

½ cauliflowers
2 tsp butter
¼ cup plain bread crumbs

I usually boil the cauliflower first to make it a little softer.  I boil the cauliflower for 3 minutes in boiling water; you can also steam it if you wish.   Once the Cauliflower is steamed or cooked let it dry off.

In a frying pan add the butter and let is soften, once the butter is softened pour the bread crumbs all over the butter and let it brown a little about 2 minutes.  Once your butter and bread crumbs are brown pour in the cauliflower and mix it all together, about another 2 minutes.
