Good things to eat

Roasted Cauliflower

I tasted this dish in a Lebanese restaurant some time ago and have been trying to re-create it ever since.

I fear that the deliciousness of their cauliflower dish has to do with the fact that it is deep fried.  I tried to make a healthier version by roasting it instead.   I found it tasted pretty close and at the very least made me feel better about eating it.

In a large roasting dish or like glass lasagna casserole type dish you will need:

  • one large cauliflower cut up into bite size bits ( but keep them kind of big cause they shrink! )
  • a generous drizzle of olive oil

Toss thoroughly!

Then sprinkle with:

The yeast is the secret weapon.  Not only is it full of great vitamins but it also gives it a bit of a parma cheese without the dairy type taste.

Toss again and place in a 450 degree oven.

Bake for at least 10 minutes then take them out and have a look and perhaps toss them a little more and return to oven if they aren’t quite done.

When they get a nice brown on them but aren’t yet mushy, they are done!

Top with a flavourful lemon garlic tahini sauce  ( see yesterday’s post) and they make a great side dish or appetizer or pop them on some nice brown rice and pour on extra sauce and you’ve got yourself a nice vegan meal.

Yum yum.

    Roasted brocolli, roasted eggplant (with tomato sauce), and roasted brussel sprouts are *amazing*

  3. […] how about some left over roasted cauliflower?  Why […]

  4. […] then to round off the meal, I made a batch of my own Roasted Cauliflower which always adds a little comfort to anything you have it […]

  5. Love your take with yeast! Have to admit never tried roadted cauliflower this way before, now another must try recipe!!

    • Oh it really jazzes it up! Let’s face it, cauliflower can be kind of bland. And that yeast, never mind that it actually adds all sorts of nutritional benefit, it really tastes great kind of like a parma cheese. I do recommend giving it a try!

  6. […] First I got started with a nice batch of roasted yams and roasted cauliflower. […]
