Spicy Cauliflower and Broccoli

Veggies are good for you!

Remember when your mom used to say, “Eat your vegetables--they are good for you.” Well, she happened to be right. A good portion of vegetables on daily basics does the body good.

Side vegetables are great for accompanying any meal. Here’s a side vegetable with a “kick.” See, I always say that vegetables do not have to be boring. You can make them taste better with a little hint of flavor.

Here's the recipe.

Small head of cauliflower (broken up into small florets)
Small head of broccoli (broken up into small florets)
3 tablespoon olive oil
1 red pepper (chopped)
2 tablespoon onions (finely chopped)
2 garlic cloves (minced)
¼ teaspoon ground cumin
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
¼ teaspoon ground coriander
¼ teaspoon ground turmeric
Salt and ground black pepper to taste

  1. In a medium saucepan, bring salted water to a boil. Add cauliflower and broccoli, lower heat and simmer 5-6 minutes. Don't over cook as you want the vegetables to be crispy and not saggy.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat olive oil and sauté onions, garlic and red peppers.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients except ground black pepper, and continue to sauté.
  4. Drain cauliflower and broccoli and add into the skillet and sauté until all is well mixed.
  5. Add ground black pepper to taste.
Serve immediately.
