Cauliflower with Ginger and Mustard Seeds
3 tablespoons paleo oil
2 teaspoons black mustard seeds (available at East Indian markets and some
  specialty foods shops) or yellow mustard seeds
2 teaspoons grated peeled fresh gingerroot
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1 large head of cauliflower (about 1 3/4 to 2 pounds), cut into in small
  flowerets about 1 inch in diameter
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice, or to taste
3 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander if desired

In a large skillet heat the oil over moderate heat until it is hot but not
smoking and in it cook the mustard seeds, covered, stirring occasionally,
until the popping subsides. Add the gingerroot and the turmeric and cook
the mixture, stirring, for 30 seconds. Add the cauliflower, stirring to
coat it with the oil, and 1/2 cup water and steam the mixture, covered,
adding more water a few tablespoons at a time if it evaporates, for 6 to 10
minutes, or until the cauliflower is just tender. Season the cauliflower
mixture with the lemon juice and salt and pepper and stir in the coriander.

Comments: Lemon and coriander are a must.
