HOLY CRAP!! THE HUSBAND ATE CAULIFLOWER!!!
Let me say that again, I’m having a hard time believing it myself. The HUSBAND ate CAULIFLOWER!
Ok, my initial shock is over. Let me back up and tell you the story.
Last week I saw this recipe in Eating Well. It’s sounded (and looked) so good I had to try it. Of course I had to make it my own (I swear I am unable to cook exactly according to a recipe – it’s a problem I have).
Anyway, the husband comes downstairs, sees what I’m cooking, and says, “Man! I HATE cauliflower!” But he’s happy to see the chicken and potatoes I’m making along side, so he doesn’t complain much.
I make our plates and serve him a bit of the cauliflower on the side. He’s so used my experiments he doesn’t even complain. To my surprise, he takes a bite and says, “Humpf! Not bad, much better then plain cauliflower.”
I almost fell out of my chair!
To make it even better, the toddler ate a few bites. So this is definitely a winner! I love having another veggie I can put in rotation!
- 1 head fresh cauliflower cleaned and cut into bite size pieces
- 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 1 tsp dried parsley
- Salt & Pepper
- Non-stick cooking spray
- 1 tbsp Parmesan cheese
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
Cut and clean the cauliflower and place in a large bowl.
Mix the vinegar, parsley, sat and pepper in a small bowl.
Pour the vinegar mixture over the cauliflower. Toss to coat evenly (a great job for the toddler-although we lost a few)
Spray a large cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Pour the cauliflower and spread them around the sheet.
Roast for about 15 minutes, shaking and tossing a few times. After 15 minutes, sprinkle with the parmesan cheese. Return to the oven for an additional 5 minutes. Serve!
