Cauliflower’s mistaken identity


It was my turn to be in charge of movie night snacks. I was, however, easily distracted by the cauliflower that had only a few days left of shelf life. Therefore, I decided to roast it. This is not popcorn; but, hey- if the individuals in your home keep coming back to the pan to grab a few, don’t stop them. After all, it is yummy, cheesy, and delicious.

  •  1 head cauliflower
  • 1 medium onion minced
  • 4 thyme sprigs
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan

Preparation: Preheat oven to 425°F. In a large mixing bowl combine cut 1 head cauliflower into florets; with 1 minced medium onion, 4 thyme sprigs,  4 garlic cloves minced, and 3 tablespoons olive oil; season with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Mixed together well in bowl. Toss on a large rim baking sheet. Roast, tossing occasionally, until almost tender, 35-40 minutes. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup grated Parmesan, toss to combine, and roast until cauliflower is golden brown.

    Yum! Another good trick with cauliflower is to slice into large “steaks”, spray with some olive oil, sprinkle with McCormick Montreal steak seasoning and bake until cooked through. Tastes remarkably like steak and obviously much healthier😊.
