Cauliflower with carrot

This cauliflower has been sitting in my fridge for quite a long while… it was actually meant for Alicia’s meals but due to her extremely slow eating, I’ve often had to skip the veggie at night and just give her fruits instead to balance her meal. And that’s how it ended up as our meal instead. Well, she did eat some of it that night and she even drank up the leftover sauce…
Cauliflower with carrot

  • 1 cauliflower
  • 1 carrot
  • 1/2 handful dried shrimp (omit for tots below 18mths)
  • 1-2 cloves garlic (mince)
  • water
  • fish sauce to taste (optional)

  1. Cut the cauliflower into florets, remove any blemishes. Peel and slice the carrot.
  2. Rinse the dried shrimp then soak for a short while then mince the dried shrimp. Keep the water in which the dried shrimps were soaked for the cooking.
  3. Heat some oil in a wok and add the dried shrimp and fry till fragrant.
  4. Add the garlic and fry till fragrant. Don’t add the garlic together with the dried shrimp as garlic browns very quickly.
  5. Add the cauliflower, then the carrot (cauliflower takes longer to cook).
  6. Add the reserved water so it’s not too dry. Let it simmer in the wok till the cauliflower is cooked.
  7. Add fish sauce to taste (optional) – I didn’t as dried shrimp is already saltish.
  8. Dish and serve.

For toddler’s consumption:
  • Cut cauliflower into small florets and carrot into smaller pieces before serving.
  • Omit the dried shrimps in the cooking for tots below 18mths.
