Roasted Cauliflower

This is a recipe I read about in a magazine a few weeks ago. (I wish I could remember what magazine it was. Does it sound familiar to you?) The article explained how roasting the cauliflower at a high temperature would bring out the natural sugars and caramelize them... and that even people who don't ordinarily like cauliflower would eat it this way. I do like cauliflower, and the recipe sounded delicious. I was telling Mother about it, and she thought it sounded good, too. I promised to send her the recipe if I found it again. I think I must have tossed the magazine it was in, but I finally remembered to Google "roasted cauliflower" and found it online here. I don't know if it's the same person or not, but the recipe sounds the same from what I remember: olive oil, salt, pepper, high temperature. So I tried it! And it was delicious! I could have eaten the whole bowlful (one head) myself. But I didn't. Here's what it looked like:
I followed the recipe at The Inadvertent Gardener, so you can just click through to read the instructions. And, yes, I found it "eminently tasty"!

I would probably say that looks disgusting if it weren't for the fact that the best veggies I have ever had in my life were at a respectable restaurant and looked just like that. Thanks for the link!

Karla,

I do like cauliflower. I would like to try it. Thank you for linking to the recipe. Did the rest of your family enjoy it as well?

Karla said...

Yes, my family enjoyed it as well. Which is why I didn't "get" to eat the whole bowlful myself! LOL! I'll probably fix 2 heads next time.

Glad you liked the recipe! I can't claim that it's all that original, but it is pretty fabulous, huh? I agree -- two heads are better than one in this case.
