Korean Cauliflower Stir Fry

Thank you for sharing!

Last Updated on May 31, 2015 by

I love the different colored cauliflower’s that are now available in supermarkets. There is no difference in flavor but I find it more aesthetically appealing, especially if you are using all three in a dish or a crudite platter. They used to be quite a bit more expensive than regular white cauliflower, but since their popularity has grown the prices are now comparable.

This recipe from The Kimchi Chronicles was a cold broccoli salad. I used green cauliflower instead and adapted the recipe to a warm side dish instead. For those of you who don’t know, the Kimchi Chronicles is a PBS food TV show by Marja Vongerichten…yes she is the wife of world famous restauranteur Jean Georges Vongrichten. She has a very interesting story. She was born of a Korean mother and black father, who was in the military in Korea. However, her mother was left alone and it was very difficult at that time to be a single mother and especially with a black child in Korea. Her mother gave her up for adoption and she was raised here in America. As an adult, she met her birth mother and learned a lot about her Korean heritage and culture, which led to the Kimchi Chronicles. She has now written a book by the same name which includes many recipes from the television show.

  1. I've never watched Kimchi Chronicles though I've heard a lot about it. Have to check my local PBS station to see if we get here.
