roasted cauliflower

Wow, how did I live this long without enjoying roasted cauliflower?

These days I’m always looking for tasty ways to get more vegetables into my diet. Someone suggested roasting cauliflower (apparently I missed the trend from a few years ago). Okay, truly, this is delicious – roasting brings out so much sweetness you never knew was hiding within that lumpy white head of veg! It’s easy too.

There are several recipes out there; here’s how I did it: Pre-heat oven to 450°. Cut a head of cauliflower into 1 1/2″ pieces, arrange in a shallow baking pan, toss with a couple tablespoons olive oil, some salt and pepper, and some herbs if you like, maybe fresh thyme. Roast for 15 minutes. Add a couple cloves of minced garlic and toss (with more oil if needed). Roast for another 10 – 15 minutes.

Eat like candy. Or as an accompaniment to some protein.

    I truly love roasted cauliflower. Same goes for asparagus, broccoli, winter squash, tomatoes… the possibilities are infinite.
