Roasted Cauliflower Bites

7 Jan

When you get a craving for hot and salty, give roasted cauliflower a try.  My almost 7 year old was determined to NOT try these, but once he did he was surprised at how much he liked them.  I, for one, NEVER liked cauliflower, but now find myself easily eating just about an entire head all by myself!

Start with a fresh head of cauliflower.  Cauliflower looks similar to broccoli, but usually is white.  Sometimes you can find purple and golden colored varieties of cauliflower.  The only difference is in the color.  The flavor is the same.

Peel off the green leaves and use a sharp knife to cut off the stem that the leaves are connected to.  Then, use your sharp knife to cut the white portions of the cauliflower in to bite sized pieces.

Place all of the pieces in to a large bowl and toss with some extra virgin olive oil or melted coconut oil and some salt and pepper.

Heat your oven to 400.  Spread the cauliflower pieces on to a rimmed cooking sheet.

Bake the cauliflower for 50-60 minutes.  Every 20 minutes stir the cauliflower around some.  Roasted cauliflower tastes best when it is browned some–it also gets a bit crunchy the longer it cooks…Delicious!

Let me know what you think of this easy side dish or snack.
