Cauliflower, garlic, thyme, and pine nuts. Each one of these ingredients are wonderful roasted wouldn’t you say? Toss them all together as a team and into the oven and voila – an easy side dish that’s really good and really good for you.

I love dishes that are easy to make yet taste really good, and Roasted Cauliflower is both of those things.
I’ve noticed the past year or so that every LA hipster restaurant I go into these days is serving Roasted Cauliflower and Brussel Sprouts. There was a time when those vegetables were things your mother forced you to eat. Well this mama doesn’t have to force anybody to eat these veggies.
Roasting the cauliflower brings out it’s natural goodness. Tossed with some good quality olive oil, a little garlic, pine nuts and thyme and you have yourself an easy to make, awesomely good side dish. For parties I’ll roast a large pan of cauliflower and serve it with a tangy yogurt sauce. If the hipster restaurants can do it, so can I.
