Author Notes: Pan-frying cauliflower brings out the natural sugars and caramelizes them, giving this side dish a sweet, nutty flavor. This recipe was written by the Healthline Editorial Team: Healthline


Serves 4

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 large cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  1. Warm olive oil and melt the butter in a large fry pan over medium heat.
  2. Add the cauliflower florets in an even layer and cook without stirring until lightly browned, 3 to 4 minutes.
