Flavoursome Roasted Cauliflower

Flavoursome Roasted Cauliflower

I know some people are crazy about cauliflowers but they have never been top of my fave veggies. Often they are cooked in a way which is so bland so I have resolved to find more exciting ways to make the white vegetable more exciting. And when I ate basically half a cauli in one sitting thanks to this Flavoursome Roasted Cauliflower I think I’m on my way!

The keeping quality of cauliflower makes them a great vegetable for buying up on offer and this dish, which is enough for four people as a side or two as a main, came in at just £1.20 – but tastes like an expensive side.

It’s also really versatile so next time I will make double – one to have hot with some vegan sausages or a piece of fish – the second to combine with some giant couscous a little more lemon and oil and perhaps a handful of rocket. It’s also so quick and easy to make if you prepare the couscous while it’s roasting you could make 4-8 meals in just half an hour.

There’s a reason to love cauliflower!
