I officially OD’ed on this stuff, and I feel pretty good about it.
Broccoli and cauliflower, two of my favorite cruciferous crusaders (disguised by day as plain old boring, borderline bland vegetables) duet together in this bright and flavorful, glucosinolate-packin’ conglomeration.
Full of those cancer cramping compounds found so copiously in this particular lineage of the cabbage family, this stuff is so good for you…..so full of vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals – that you will WELCOME the fact that you CAN’T STOP (won’t stop) eating it!
I’m telling you what. Seriously.
Garlic infused veggies roasted with crunchy slivered almonds until everybody is bronzed and toasty, splashed with an invigorating squeeze of lemon and kissed with a dash of grated cheese for a satisfyingly salty finish. Oh, YUM.
Super substantial, slightly exotic and even a little unusual, this salad is truly perfect.
( Kind of like YOU, right? I know . . . ME too! )
Roasted cauliflower chickpea perfection……this hefty, so much clout you can serve it up and call it a meal – salad’s salad has got it all. Believe me when I tell you;
The election is /// finally /// over. And call it my civic duty….. but it seems like the perfect time to talk about something I think we ALL can agree on.
The “Miss Congeniality” of the cruciferous crowd of vegetables that includes brussels sprouts, cabbage and broccoli, cauliflower just likes to get along. Cauliflower is gentle, unlike her more sulfurous side-kicks. Cauliflower doesn’t need to show off, or overpower anything, or criminally corrupt a dish with any egomaniacal essences.
Cauliflower just makes everyone around her better! And that includes you. Because cauliflower:
This is sooooo good! I know I always seem to say that and I really DO mean it each and every time…………
but I gotta tell you…….. this stuff. Oh man.
Take a favorite cooler-weather culinary pleasure (in this case, a satisfyingly steamy bowl of something yummy), take out the copious amounts of carbs (think potatoes, pasta, bread, beans), add in a plentiful pack of superabundant sustenance (like, ya know, just some major vitamin, mineral, antioxidant action), and you will end up with this amazing bowl of body and soul satisfaction.

Oh, I’ve been so bad.
I deliberately and willfully took an angelic head of cauliflower, the essence of purity with its gentle flavor, impressive nutritive value and soothing color…….and I went and did………this.
All wrapped up in a decadent cloak of dreamy cheesy-ness, topped with a smoky smattering of porky crispy-ness (NO soggy bacon here), this creamy cauliflower up-do had me at: Hello – oh no.
I love these little guys. You know, those cute little mini pumpkins popping up all over the place this time of year. They are almost too cute NOT to make into adorable edible vessels to stuff with all sorts of deliciousness, like this sausage and cauliflower “rice” goodness. Garlicky Chorizo adds earthy heat (not too spicy, just enough to keep things interesting) to a perfect base of onion and red bell pepper all married together with cauliflower rice. Yes, cauliflower rice, which is a wonderful thing…
