Easy PEASY Cauliflower

It is cold and wintry mixes are coming. I turn and look at my winter comfort vegetable, cauliflower and am craving for a quick easy dish. I quickly break the cauliflower into little florets, saute it in oil with spices and add the finishing touch that gives the dish “oomph” – crushed dried fenugreek leaves. I’m transported to a blissful state, ready to weather the storms 🙂
