Roasted Cauliflower with ParmesanComments : 4 Posted in : Side Dish on by : Chris Tags: cauliflower, healthy, side, side dish, vegetable
I suppose you could call this the guilty post. The “I’ve been posting too many decadent desserts so now I need to repent and do a healthy recipe” post.
But that would imply I’m sorry about those Oreo Cupcakes, or the Apple Dumplings, or the S’mores Bars; and I’m not sorry. I enjoyed them immensely (in moderation!) and I’m sure you enjoyed seeing them.
It’s so easy to throw some sugar and butter together and get something delicious. It is much more challenging to take a vegetable and make it delicious loading it up with extra calories and fat.
And since we don’t always do such a good job about eating our veggies, we thought we’d take the challenge. So to the food blogosphere we went, and we found this Roasted Cauliflower with Parmesan recipe.
As I mentioned before, in my younger years I naively would turn my nose to anything labeled “healthy”. Of course, when I was just a pup in high school or college, I could eat anything I want and get away with it. But being (a little) older and spending most of my day sitting stationary, working in front of a computer, things don’t work that way anymore. So I’m a big fan of recipes that are both healthy and tasty.
Don’t tell my Mom but I think I love cauliflower now. Roasting them in the oven made them nice and crispy. And the moderate amount of parmesean cheese and salt made them savory enough to want more.
You’ll probably want to eat them all in one sitting otherwise you’ll lose that nice crunch. But trust me – these were so good that isn’t a problem. I was shocked when I realized between Rachel and I we had eaten an entire head of cauliflower. 🙂
