Roast Cauliflower with Cheddar

Sorry about the photo for this! I didn’t realize it was bad and only took one. Despite my horrible photography skills, this was a great dish and simple too. Arrange your cauliflower on a greased baking sheet and toss with olive oil. Salt and pepper it. Roast at 450 for 20 minutes, tossing halfway through. Once it reaches the level of doneness you like, push it together in the middle of the sheet and put some cheddar cheese over it. Stick it back in until the cheese melts. Voila.

I am a big fan of roasting veggies. It gives them SO much more flavor. I get really tired of your typical boiled veggies, so I’ve been doing this more and more with different things. This recipe is from Sept Everyday Food, by the way. The cauliflower gets a nice nutty flavor and it didn’t burn (something I always worry about when roasting at such a high temp). And cheese, well, everything is better with cheese, isn’t it?

    I was (and still am) having some real issues with getting my pictures to turn out properly. I found a great blog the other day at http://www.foodbloggersunite.com that has a ton of inexpensive and creative ways to get the picture right. Now I just have to get to Home Depot and get some of the stuff.

    This recipe looks great and is really simple, which I like. What kind of spice do you put on it?

    Thanks. Photos are always an afterthought for me – I’m always so focused on the actual food. It’s a struggle.

    No spice on this. It is dark b/c it was roasted.

  3. Yes, everything tastes better with cheese. I think I’ll make this. When it gets cooler so I’m inspired to use the oven. Also maybe with broccoli instead of cauliflower, since we all like broc better…

    I like to roast broccoli stalks (cit up into coins), carrots (likewise) and cauliflower. great meal on its own, also nice to use in small amounts to flavor pasta, rice dishes, steamed vegetables, and so forth.
