The other day Adam came home from school and told me he had cauliflower for lunch…and that it was so good!  I have never really eaten cauliflower, much less made it at home, so I saw this as a great opportunity to broaden our horizons.  If school can make roasted cauliflower taste delicious, then hopefully I can too!

As we all know, roasting vegetables is one of the simplest ways to enhance everything naturally delicious about the them.  Preparation takes minutes and the flavors deepen and caramelize into something that even gets cleared off the plate of a 4-year old’s school lunch.  When it comes to seasonings for roasted vegetables, I always find less is more and that is the approach I took with this Roasted Cauliflower recipe.

I started with a simple olive oil infused safflower oil blend by Pompeian.  This OlivExtra California Select blend is great because the safflower oil is ideal for high-heat cooking,that can often come with roasting or sauteing, yet it still provides the excellent taste of the olive oil.  To the oil, I added a splash of balsamic vinegar, garlic and then salt and pepper and tossed to coat the cauliflower florets.  Next I poured everything out in a single layer on a lined, rimmed baking sheet and popped it in the oven until browned.

Not only did Adam love this Roasted Cauliflower, but little Greta kept demanding for more!  This Roasted Cauliflower recipe is simple enough to accompany any meal.  It would also make a wonderful healthy side dish for those heavy holiday meals coming up!
