Cauliflower in a Spicy Peanut Sauce

After making cauliflower soup with porcini mushrooms and parmesan, I had a leftover half of a cauliflower head and was looking for an entirely different way to prepare it so I wouldn't feel like I was on cauliflower overload.  My recent craving for a peanut dish led to the birth of what you see here, which is a cinch to make and comes together extremely quickly.  It only requires 5 ingredients, thereby completing its blissful ease.

I used coconut milk, but I imagine coconu water would taste great also and would certainly be lighter.  You may just need to let the sauce simmer and reduce a little longer.  Serve over some sticky white rice or steamed vegetables such as green beans and carrots.  However you eat it, I hope you enjoy!

Cauliflower in a Spicy Peanut Sauce - serves 1

1/2-head of cauliflower
1/2-cup coconut milk
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon peanut butter
1 pinch cayenne pepper/red pepper flakes

1.  Bring a pot of water to a boil; cook the cauliflower until tender, about 20 minutes.
2.  Meanwhile, heat the remaining ingredients along with a pinch of salt and pepper in a skillet over medium-high heat.  Cook until just starting to boil and ingredients are fully combined, about 5-7 minutes.
3.  Once cauliflower is ready, drain and add to skillet with sauce; toss to combine and serve, spooning over any remaining sauce.
