  • 2 tablespoons whole almonds
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange zest
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  1. Place cauliflower and broth in a microwave-safe bowl; cover loosely with plastic wrap and microwave until tender, 4 minutes
  2. Heat the olive oil and in a large skillet over medium-high heat; Add the almonds to toast until lightly browned. Add the garlic and cook about 1 minute. Add the cauliflower and broth, the cranberries, orange zest, parsley, salt, and pepper to taste and stir to heat through.
No Almonds? Use pistachios or other similar nuts. No chicken broth? You can substitute water.

Instead of microwaving the cauliflower you could also roast the cauliflower in a parchment lined pan for 30 minutes at 400 F. This, of course, will take longer.
