2017 is off to a great start. This time of year is always exciting for me, people are genuinely interested in trying new foods and recipes. What I am most excited about this year, is the humble cauliflower!
I’m serious, I predict that cauliflower is going to be the vegetable of the year. (Insert tiara).
There are several new cauliflower products out on the market such as cauliflower crumbles, cauliflower tater tot’s, and cauliflower blends. But my favorite way to eat cauliflower is roasted. There’s something about the roasting process that just brings out the natural sweetness and cauliflower flavor. It’s simple, flavorful, and just amazing!
All you do is cut up your cauliflower, drizzle with a little olive oil, salt, pepper or any other spices you enjoy (we love smoked paprika), roast in a hot oven (425 degrees) for about 30 minutes, flipping halfway through. Make sure to leave plenty of room on the pan so that the cauliflower roasts instead of steams. Overcrowding causes soggy vegetables. (And no one likes soggy vegetables.)
So, as you aim to add more veggies to your day, don’t forget about the humble cauliflower.
