In my broccoli post I may have been joking about eating it every day all winter long…but that is exactly what has been happening at our house.
Which is totally fine with me, I’m not a huge one for variety. However this week I thought it might be time to expand our repertoire of crucifers juuuuust a bit.
I wondered–if roasting could make broccoli, a vegetable I tolerate, into something I eat like candy–what might it do for cauliflower, a vegetable I frankly loathe?
I had recently read a recipe somewhere that included cauliflower steaks. Cauliflower steaks. I confess I don’t remember what else was in the recipe, I became so obsessed with this idea. Cauliflower steaks…cauliflower steaks…It just sounded so subversively vegan.
(As it turns out, the steaks aren’t really all that when compared to just the regular old clusters. I think because the cut of the steaks mean you lose some of the texture. So there are some “steaks” in these photos but I’m just sharing the recipe for plain ol’ regular-shaped cauliflower.)
This is another dead simple recipe. Actually, it’s not a recipe, just a thing I did that worked out well. The indian spices and the caramelized cauliflower make a delicious combination.
This may be another easy-to-make antioxidant superhero that will help carry us through the winter. My number one rule: keep doing what works!
- 2 heads of cauliflower
- olive oil
- 2 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp turmeric
- 1 tsp chili powder
- salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 450.
Chop (thoroughly dried) cauliflower roughly into florets. Toss with a light coating of olive oil and the spices. Arrange on a baking sheet lined with tinfoil or a silpat. Bake for 25 minutes.
P.S. Today is the last day to vote for Love & Greens in the Circle of Moms Top 25 Vegan and Vegetarian Mom Blogs. I’m holding on to the #25 spot by my fingernails, and just generally happy to be included in this great group of women. I’d so appreciate it if you could vote for me so that I could stay in the Top 25! (There’s no need to register, and if you have already voted, you can vote again today until 5pm PST.)
