Ode to Cauliflower
Yes, I know. Cauliflower is not high on the list of favorite veggies but honestly, you need to try roasting it. The flavor is sweet and the texture tender. I played around with white, purple and this golden yellow variety that I think is gorgeous to look at. Are you game to try it?
Cut a slice from the top of a whole cauliflower to help it lie flat. Brush the head with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place cut side down on a lightly oiled baking sheet and roast at 350F for 35-40 minutes. The piece you cut from the top can be cooked along side; it will cook faster than the head, so remove when done. To serve, slice or cut into small pieces.
