If you’re attending, or even hosting, a holiday party this year, you’re probably on the hunt for a delicious recipe to wow your fellow guests. For me, I much prefer experimenting with a side dish to create a fun twist on a classic meal. Leave the turkey or ham be the traditional staples, but have some fun with a few of the side dishes, is what my method is. That’s exactly what I did with this cauliflower stir fry recipe. This zesty twist on your classic holiday veggie is the perfect holiday party recipe…& it will probably have your guests devouring every bit of their veggie! #SeasonedGreetings #CollectiveBias




This Thanksgiving, all but one of our children with be with their other respective families. As a blended family, we often alternate holidays; so what was a busy holiday last year, will be rather quiet this year. Because of this, we left an open invitation to all of our friends & acquaintances who have nowhere to be or anyone to visit this holiday, to come to our home where we will be serving a classic Thanksgiving meal with all the fixin’s….including this delicious side dish.
INGREDIENTS (inspired by The Pioneer Woman)
  • one head cauliflower
  • vegetable oil
  • two tablespoons minced garlic
  • two tablespoons soy sauce
  • one teaspoon ground ginger
  • juice from one lime
  • three green onions, diced
  • one tablespoon Tobasco Original Red



  1. Break up the cauliflower into fairly small florets, using your hands is best for this process.
  2. Heat a large skillet to high & add in vegetable oil. Just enough to coat the pan, maybe two tablespoons.
  3. Add your cauliflower, ginger, & garlic; allow it to turn brown in some areas.
  4. Cook for three minutes of you like a crunchier end result or five if you prefer softer cauliflower, then reduce the heat to low.
  5. Add soy sauce, lime juice, & the green onion.
  6. Mix well & allow to cook for an additional minute.
  7. Next, add in that oh-so-lovely Tobasco!
  8. Mix until the Tobasco is nicely incorporated & add more to taste if you prefer….& boy, do I prefer!
  9. Serve & enjoy!




Cooking with Tobasco as a flavor enhancer is a fun little cooking secret I love to share (I guess it’s not such a secret then, is it?). With multiple flavors available, it’s not just for adding spice to your favorite foods; it makes such a great cooking base that adds flavor to any side dish or even main course. I found several interesting flavors at my local Walmart that I cannot wait to experiment with.

Will you be experimenting with any of your side dishes this Thanksgiving? How do you enhance the flavors in your dishes? Give me all of your culinary advice in the comments below!
