I know what you're thinking.....Cauliflower? But it really is so good and can be used in so many ways. My favorite way to prepare cauliflower is roasting it. It's pretty much my favorite way to make any veggie actually. Add some parmesan, and you won't even remember you're eating a vegetable! The parmesan melts and gets all nutty and crispy....it's awesome.
I cut my cauliflower pretty small, into bite-sized pieces. If you want it bigger, go for it. Just remember that the bigger it is, the longer it will take to cook. You can just plan the size around the time it takes for other things to finish cooking.
Do y'all line your pans with foil? I always do. This way, I can just throw the foil into the RECYCLING BIN and rinse the pans, and they are clean and ready to be put away. I only have a couple cookie sheets, so I can't have them all in the dishwasher!
You'll know your cauliflower is done, when the edges get nice and golden, and the cheese is melted. Excuse my paper plate....I was running a very full dishwasher.
Doesn't that look delicious? Even if you're not a cauliflower fan, give this one a try. I bet you'll like it!
