    Sorry it confused you, yes sprinkle the flower over the sauteed vegetables. Add the cayenne when you are seasoning to taste. Enjoy!

    #5 in directions is confusing. Does that mean in a separate pan sprinkle flour over all of hte spices or sprinkle it over the sauteed vegetables? Also, when should the cayenne be added?
