Roasted Cauliflower

For the new year, just like half of the world, I am going to try to eat a healthier diet, exercise more and try to loss a few pounds that have found their way onto my body. So with that said my first post if 2010 is roasted cauliflower. Roasted cauliflower is one of my favorite veggie dishes and I add a little nutrition and flavor punch with diced red peppers and onions.

Preheat oven to 400F

cut a head of cauliflower into little bit size florets.
chop a red bell pepper into a small dice
chop a small onion into a small dice
3 tablespoons olive oil
course sea salt
fresh cracked pepper

place all ingredients in a bowl and toss to coat with oil. Pour the vegetables into a cast iron pan (cast iron gives a better browning) and bake the cauliflower in the oven for about 20 to 30 minutes or until it is browned slightly and tender, be sure to stir the cauliflower ever 10 minutes or so.

By no means is this only way we make cauliflower in our house, my daughter loves hers steamed and one day I make cauliflower with a nice cheese sauce baked in the oven and she took one bit looked up at me with a look on her face and said "mom please don't make this with the uky sauce again" LOL she is such a purest.

Roasted cauliflower is the bee's knees. And my son loves it too. I have never added any other veggies to it like you. Good idea. I am going to do that next time.

Happy New Year lady!
