I eat vegetables. It never used to be that way. I actually hated vegetables until my now husband started coaxing me to try veggies again. My mom used to overcook all veggies until they were mush. I've learned to steam my veggies and much prefer the taste. I'm a firm believer in cooking your veggies different ways until you find a way that the kiddos like them. If they don't like carrots, make carrots 5 nights in a row, but prepare them with different seasonings or cooking methods each night. Your kids are bound to like them one way. I want to share my new favorite veggie recipe. My mom made it last week and I am hooked.
4 cups of cauliflower tops
2 Tbls olive oil
Simply steam cauliflower for 8 minutes. Remove from heat. In a non-stick pan heat olive oil over med-high heat. Add cauliflower to hot pan and add a few shakes of garlic powder and oregano. Cook for 3 more minutes or until you see the cauliflower browning. Serve hot and season with salt and pepper as desired.
