Turmeric Cauliflower Steaks 2

Pan Seared Cauliflower, Ginger, Turmeric, Orange

Cauliflower is very on trend. Turmeric is very on trend. And after making these, I can honestly say, both of these trends are worth a go, especially together.

Cauliflower is replacing carbs in a big way with dishes like cauliflower mash, cauliflower risotto, and cauliflower pizza crust. Now we have cauliflower taking center stage on your plate. And Pan Seared Cauliflower, Ginger, Turmeric, Orange deserves to be the center of attention. Those colors – the oranges, yellow, green – the caramelization and slight char. But looks aren’t everything. Pan Seared Cauliflower, Ginger, Turmeric, Orange is also easy to make, low in calories, carbohydrates, and saturated fat, and contains no added sugar. I’ll take a double portion, please!
