Mediterranean Inspired Cauliflower

A zesty approach to livening up cauliflower!


1 head of cauliflower, chopped into small florets (about 4 cups)
½ of a red bell pepper, diced (about ½ cup)
2 tablespoons chopped kalamata olives
1 teaspoon olive oil
¼-1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
¼-1/2 teaspoon oregano


Cook the cauliflower until almost done- this can be done by either boiling it in a pot of water, steaming in a pyrex dish in an half inch of water, or even quicker, put it in a Glad® Simply Cooking™ Microwave Steaming Bag and heat on high for about 3-4 minutes. Meanwhile, add a half teaspoon olive oil and the chopped pepper to medium sized pan and put on medium—high heat for about 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally until slightly tender. Then add the cooked cauliflower the other ½ teaspoon olive oil, the olives, oregano and garlic powder and sauté until lightly browned and warmed though, about 3-6 minutes.
