Cauliflower with Sundried Tomatoes and Olives Recipe
  • Remove leaves and core from a medium (about 1 1/2 lb) head of cauliflower and divide into florets. Extra-large florets can be sliced in half lengthwise for more even cooking.
  • Slice the onion into thin slices and separate into rings. Soak the dried tomatoes in warm water - just enough to cover them. Prepare the olives by removing any pits and cutting the olives in half.
  • Cook the cauliflower pieces until just tender (don't let them get mushy): microwave in a covered dish about 5 minutes, or simmer in 1/2 cup water in a saucepan about 5 - 10 minutes.
  • Heat the olive oil in a skillet or sauté pan large enough to easily hold the cauliflower. Over medium heat, sauté the onions in the olive oil until they are soft and beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Add the olives, the drained tomatoes, the cooked and drained cauliflower.
  • Stir over medium heat just enough to mix well. Add salt and pepper to taste: start with 1/4 teaspoon of salt and a few grinds of pepper; taste and add more if necessary
