I feel like I need to post a nice, healthy, full-of-antioxidants recipe once in awhile, so here you have it…..
Roasted Cauliflower With Parmesan
If you don’t think you like cauliflower, don’t worry, you’re not alone…personally, I can’t eat it raw, but I discovered roasting it ~ whooda thunk?
If you really want to read up on all the wonderful health benefits and some weird and not so interesting cauliflower characteristics, check out the Wikipedia entry here.
Or, if you just want to trust me and see this easy side dish, then c’mon…let’s go!
All you need are these things:
A head of cauliflower, olive oil, salt, pepper, parmesan cheese and an oven preheated to 400*F.
Rinse your head of cauliflower and cut into florets, like this:
Then, in a bowl, drizzle the florets with olive oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper & parmesan cheese. Toss to coat evenly.
Pop into the oven on an aluminum foil lined pan for 20-25 minutes.
I like mine a little more on the tender side, so I lean towards the 25 minute mark.
This is what the final healthiness looks like:
They’re kinda like a Lay’s potato chip ~ you can’t eat just one. Really. Try it.
Any leftovers are great the next day on a salad.
Another great roasted veggie is broccoli, believe it or not. I have made this one a million times and it’s also a keeper…
Hopefully these two recipes will make it easier to get your 5 servings of veggies a day.
So, go on…go out there and get your antioxidants on!
