Do you like cauliflower? I guess you do if you are reading my post. Or as my dad used to joke about food he loves: “I hate it, and thats why I eliminate it around me.” I hope this is not your case.
I like cauliflower and coconut a lot, but I usually feel a bit stumble when I think about what I can make so special with cauliflower. And here is the idea for you how to make cauliflower dish unusual in combination with coconut. Quite simple way to make your lunch special or to impress your date by cooking this set.
I am not going to tell you about nutritional advantages of these products this time 🙂 They are good for your nutrition for sure, dont hesitate. Just enjoy the cooking process and listen to the “Put a lime in a coconut” 🎶.
There is never too much cauliflower or too much coconut dish for me, even when there are two of them as a set.
You can cook and serve them together or consider each as a separate, as you wish.
