Brown and Braised Cauliflower with Garlic and White Wine Ingredients:

4 teaspoons olive oil
1 head cauliflower (about 2 pounds), cored and cut into bite-sized florets (about 6 cups)
3 garlic cloves, minced
⅛ teaspoon red pepper flakes
⅓ cup dry white wine
⅓ cup low-sodium chicken broth
Salt and pepper to taste
¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley


1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a 12-inch non-stick skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the cauliflower and cook, stirring occasionally, until the florets are golden brown, 7 to 9 minutes.

2. Clear the center of the skillet, add the remaining teaspoon oil, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Cook, mashing the mixture into the skillet, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir it into the cauliflower.

3. Stir in the wine, broth, and ½ teaspoon salt, cover, and cook, until the cauliflower is crisp-tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Uncover and continue to cook until the liquid is slightly thickened, about 2 minutes. Off the heat, stir in the Parmesan and parsley, season with salt and pepper to taste, and serve.
