Spiced Cauliflower with Tomatoes

This simple recipe came from the “30 Minute Meals” cookbook that Jake found on the side of the road somewhere up in Alaska. Of course, I also added a little of my own flair, so though the recipe is basically the same…it’s not exactly the same. This is one of those great recipes that allows for a lot of experimentation on the part of the chef. It’s also as quick as the cookbook suggests. I also love that it uses as few dishes as possible. I mean, who wants to do dishes? This is really simple to whip up. Save it for a night when you’re short on time and patience. And for God’s sake…have a glass of wine with your cooking! I promise it’ll make you feel better…or drunk. I recommend eating this with some nice buttery couscous.
