This one is for Patricia, who calls me at random to ask me cooking questions. I love her and I love it that she does. For once and for all, after all the misguided instructions I've rambled into the phone in my dazed and confused Mommy state, this is how you achieve scrumptious Pan Roasted Cauliflower.
Cut cauliflower into pieces.
Heat up pan on medium high heat with olive oil.
Place cauliflower pieces in pan cut side down, in one layer. Do not over crowd the pan.
Sprinkle salt on cauliflower pieces.
Let them sit there, do not touch, toss, fiddle with them for 5 minutes.
Once you start smelling that lovely toasty flavour, they are browned and ready to flip.
Cook on the other side until browned also.
Take them out of the pan when they are still crunchy.
Eat your cauliflower, serve to those who don't like cauliflower to convert them.
