Stir-Fried Frozen Cauliflower

Fresh cauliflower looked so good at the summer’s Farmer’s Market.  I froze several bags to have this winter.  I got ready to cook it and wondered how to besides boiling in water and having a soggy limp vegetable.  I did use some in soup and casseroles.  I wanted the taste of roasted cauliflower.  By thawing it first, microwaving for 1 minute and draining well by putting on towelling paper to absorb more water, the cauliflower was ready for a quick stir-fry.  Seasoned and enhanced with walnut pieces made a quick side dish.
