This is a simple side dish that can be eaten as a snack or even served on its own if you make a big enough batch. The tamari caramelizes onto the cauliflower, giving it a wonderful robustness.

Yields: Serves 1-2


1 head cauliflower, cut into florets

2 T tamari

3-4 T water

3 cloves garlic, minced

2 T minced parsley


Over medium-high heat, sauté the cauliflower, slowly stirring it until it just browns. Then add the tamari. When the tamari starts to stick to the pan, add 3 to 4 tablespoons of water and the garlic; allow the sauce to reduce until it just coats the cauliflower. Remove the cauliflower from the heat and immediately toss it with the parsley.

Options: Toss the cauliflower with the garlic, parsley, and tamari (no water) and bake it in a covered baking dish at 375 degrees F for 15 minutes.
