A Delicious, Healthy Side- Roasted Cauliflower

I am on a roasting vegetable kick. Broccoli, carrots, asparagus, you name it! My newest favorite is roasted cauliflower. I’ll have to admit cauliflower is not my favorite veggie raw and I really don’t cook with it often. This however is simple and so good. I could eat it everyday prepared this way. If you’re not into cauliflower, try it roasted. It’ll be on your veggie rotation in no time.

Cauliflower is a cruciferous vegetable responsible for helping to reduce risk of cancer due to it’s special antioxidant properties, anti-inflammatory effects, as well as it’s high fiber content. It is also an excellent source of Vitamin C! ONE cup of cooked cauliflower will provide you with almost all the Vitamin C you need in a day (92% to be exact). It is beneficial to include vegetables from the cruciferous vegetable family (also includes broccoli, cabbage, brussels sprouts) several times a week at minimum.

Cut that head of cauliflower into bite sized pieces

Toss it with your olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt & pepper and into the oven it goes!  Finish it with some parmesan. Delicious!

    I don’t know why but cauliflower is not one of my favorite veggies. I do try to like it though and don’t really mind it raw and dipped in something. :) My 6 year old son has been BEGGING for cauliflower lately. Isn’t that funny? I roasted some up for us recently but did not spruce it up like this, I totally should have! I bet that lemon really brightened it up. Looks delicious!

    (and thanks for all the info on how cauliflower is good for us, it helps!)
