Have you had your fill of decadent holiday foods? Me, well, at least for a little while. I adore all the special treats of the season. It is not over yet because of New Year’s. However, balance is a good thing. It is why I choose to cook healthy meals or make salads often. One part of those meals is a side dish of roasted cauliflower. It goes with anything from beef, chicken, pork, and more.
Roasted cauliflower does not last long here. It was earlier in the day when I made this last batch. I wanted to get it done and photographed while there was some good light. (Darn these getting dark early days). I set the bowl on the counter after I finished taking photos. I looked up and there was my husband eating it for a mid-afternoon snack.
Roasting brings out flavors in vegetables. It gives cauliflower a bit of a nutty taste and is completely different than prepared any other way. I am sure even folks who don’t care for cauliflower would like it roasted. Perhaps, perhaps not…at least it is worth a try.
What is your favorite vegetable to roast? Carrots, green beans, parsnips, and asparagus are also on my list. And cauliflower is at the very top of that list.
