I can’t believe there was a time when I didn’t like cauliflower, it’s versatility makes it a possible addition to practically any dish and being part of the cruciferous vegetable family it’s health benefits exceptional.
This is an extremely simple side dish that you can add to any plate, but if you need an extra kick of flavour try adding parmesan cheese in the last 5 mins of roasting. Personally I find the extra saturated fat isn’t necessary for this recipe, roasting the cauliflower with the onion, garlic and herbs gives it the kick I need.
Simple Roasted Cauliflower
1 head cauliflower
1/2 sliced medium white or yellow onion
4 unpeeled garlic cloves
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp REAL sea salt
A few thyme sprigs
Ground black pepper to taste
1/8 cup of organic grated parmesan cheese (optional)
Roast @ 425F until almost tender, about 20 minutes. Toss and roast for an additional 10-15 mins, and serve hot.
Tip: Do you have some leftover? Chop the remaining and add it to some cooked brown rice to bulk up that side dish!
