Roasted Cauliflower

Roasted CauliflowerCauliflower is one of my favorite veggies to roast. We’ve had it with sage, with curry powder, with paprika – or just like this, highlighted on its own. You can’t really mess it up.

I used to think that cauliflower was pretty bland. However, I’ve since grown to appreciate its unique flavor (particularly when it is roasted). If you think you don’t like cauliflower and haven’t had it in a while, give this a try and see if your tastes have changed!

What You Need

    I just tried out the recipe tonight. I added a bit more garlic (5 cloves) + a carrot I needed to take care of soon. It was FABULOUS. Healthy, and yet so tasty — even my husband loved it.

    I just discovered roasted cauliflower in the past few months. Who knew? It is marvelous. I sprinkle a bit of grated parmesan cheese over it. It sure beats steamed or boiled with Velveeta melted over it!

    Radishes are also good this way. We usually do radishes and cauliflower together, but no garlic, just olive oil, salt and pepper

    You guys make everything look beautiful!!!

    Today, I came here to look up the perfect boiled egg (in process now)–but I am definitely going to try this cauliflower. All winter long, I roasted all my veggies and loved them. Do you all ever try grapeseed oil? It is one of my favorites on veggies right now.

      Hopefully the egg recipe works the same at your altitude… you’ll have to let us know! We haven’t tried roasting veggies with grapeseed oil – thanks for the recommendation.
