Third, I'd cut the florets up more. I was holding an edge with the fork and eating around it.
But in the end, what I'll probably actually do is to flavor some olive oil with the crushed red pepper, garlic, pepper, salt, and parsley. I could use it with a lot of pastas or veggies, which I'm really good at boiling/steaming.
