Cauliflower In Pimiento Sauce

Healthycooking's picture
Cauliflower in pimiento sauce is a peppy vegetable recipe. Flavored with garlic and cooked in broth, the cauliflower in pimiento sauce is prepared with added onions. Tossed and served with minced parsley on top, it is savory yet simple.
  Olive oil 2 Teaspoon
  Yellow onion 1 Medium, sliced
  Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm), minced
  Sweet red peppers/Pimientos 2 Medium, cored, seeded, and cut into strips 1/4 inch wide
  Low sodium chicken broth 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Cauliflower florets 4 Cup (64 tbs)
  Minced parsley 1 Tablespoon

Heat the olive oil in a heavy 10 inch skillet over moderately high heat for 1 minute.
Add the onion, garlic, and pimientos, and cook, uncovered, stirring frequently, until the pimientos are tender and the onion is golden about 12 minutes.
Add the chicken broth and cook 2 minutes longer.
In an electric blender or food processor, puree the skillet mixture in 2 batches by whirling each for 15 to 20 seconds.
Return the mixture to the skillet and keep warm over low heat.
Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, bring an inch of unsalted water to a boil; add the cauliflower and cook, covered, for 8 minutes or until just tender.
Drain and add to the skillet.
Toss the cauliflower with the pimiento sauce.
Sprinkle with the parsley.
