Roasted Cauliflower

Delicious and nutritious!

Ingredients:

  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • olive oil
  • a pinch of salt
  • a larger pinch of black pepper

Preparation:

  • pre-heat the oven to 400.
  • cut the head of cauli into 1/2 inch thick slices. Small pieces will break off of the slices, no worries–they’ll taste just as fabulous!
  • place the slices on a cookie sheet or flat pan.
  • drizzle with olive oil, spreading the oil around on both sides.
  • sprinkle with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  • bake for 5 – 8 minutes, turn the pieces over, and repeat.
  • Enjoy the rich, buttery taste and crunchy texture! Let the kids pick up the slices with their hands to bite off delicious mouthfuls!

Note: I’ve been bringing home orange cauliflower whenever I find it at Briarpatch, my local natural foods co-op. It’s got a fuller flavor than it’s white cousin and offers an intriguing viewing variation.

This delightful side dish was introduced to me by my colleague and friend, Wendy Van Wagner of In the Kitchen.

The best thing I did when I discovered I had Type 2 Diabetes was to call Robin Mallery. She coached me to craft a plan to turn this condition around, and the encouragement to believe that I can.  Instead of feeling overwhelmed, I am managing well, using Robin’s program of small steps, achievable goals, and positive reinforcement.  She’s not only a fountain of knowledge and experience, but a loving teacher and motivator.  For the first time in years, I don’t feel helpless about eating and weight gain.  Thank you, Robin!
