Simply and white..and might I say -not that easy to grow: cauliflower. Personally, I find it rather bland and somewhat icky to cook with. The smell of it steaming..well, if you have ever done it, you know exactly what I mean. We generally eat it raw with a veggie dip, but lately we have discovered a new twist on this tasteless crop.
Basic Oven Roasted Cauliflower
1 head cauliflower, cut
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Drizzle cauliflower pieces with olive oil; season to taste. Roast for 30 minutes until desired crispness is achieved.
Flavors we favor:
Cajun creole seasoning
garlic and rosemary
garlic and parmesan (sprinkle cheese after remove from oven)
Italian (oregano, basil)
brown mustard (coat with a teaspoonful)
It goes with:
roast poultry, fish, beef
roasted extra crispy with a burger
toss in some chickpeas and roast them together..oh, yes
nothing at all..and yet almost anything
I love it, strangely enough my teens love it. Amazing how often we eat it now..really it is. After this, steamed cauliflower will not happen again..no way!
