italian roasted cauliflower

Roasted cauliflower is one of my favorite roasted vegetables. I know, in the midst of pumpkin and squash mania (aka October) I should be gushing about something orange, but I’m gushing about something white.

Typically I stick to the basics, and drizzle the cauliflower  with olive oil and season liberally with salt and pepper and roast until golden. But sometimes, once in a while, I add a little more flavah!

I loved this Italian twist with flavorful additions like capers and parmesan flakes. And I’m currently scheming up my next batch of roasted vegetables…

    I love lots of fall veggies, but cauliflower is my ultimate favorite. My husband and I eat roasted cauliflower like it’s popcorn. I’ll definitely be trying your variation!
