This cauliflower dish is very simple and mild in taste. It is inspired by Momofuku Ko's skate dish. They used this cauliflower, olive, and water chestnut combination as the side dish. I was blown away - the crispy texture of water chestnut works perfectly with the soft and earthy taste of the cauliflower.

We like all of these ingredients separately but I wasn't sure how it was gonna go with them combined...we liked it! I only ended up adding a few Tbsps. of water instead of the full 1/2 cup and that worked great. We really liked the flavors and different textures. This was nice for a different side. Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

With no flavor development for this made for a bland dish as expected. Not bad. Bland. I added some shredded cheese a dab of Crystals and a sprinkling of red pepper. I added 1/2 cup of water as directed and it took about 30 minutes for it to all simmer off. Read More
