Stir-fried cauliflower with tomato sauce is a simple dish of cauliflower stir-fried with tomatoes and garlic, a really nice side dish with a really good flavor. Picking the right tomatoes is the key to this dish so that the natural flavors of cauliflower would come out, which means Roma tomatoes or something similar would be the perfect ingredient to use, its tangy sweet natural flavor when it seeps through the florets enhances its nutty flavor. This dish is usually found in Chinese restaurants but it’s not as popular as most of their stir-fries.
