Steamed cauliflower with raisins and pine nuts
Smartpoints value per serving
Both raisins and pine nuts are sweet but in very different ways. The toasty sweetness of the pine nuts have a richness that work well with the honey sweetness of raisins. In under 30 minutes, these simple ingredients bring to life this dinner table staple. Plumping the raisins in water will make them full and juicy without taking out their sweetness. Keep a close eye on your pine nuts during the roasting process. Once they begin to brown the process goes to burn very quickly. If you like jewel tones, try golden raisins in place of the standard Thompson variety. Serve this upscale side dish with a slices of roasted chicken or simply grilled pork tenderloin.
