nobody would KILL for KAULIFLOWER....

UNLESS..... we are out the other day at the tasty Mexican restaurant and all day I am in the mood for French fries and black bean soup.  What I get instead is the soup and this fascinating cauliflower dish:  they somehow roast it in their wood fired oven with some spice etc. and it is crispy and amazing!  NEVER have I loved a dish so much.
I go home and endeavor to do the same.
When you buy cauliflower, you get this big thing that looks like a huge human head with the skull and face removed! (you are slightly, like, "ewww")
  I know, I have never thought cauliflower a very nice looking item.  BUT what I realize is that it is a blank canvas upon which to paint your flavor and texture...

SO, Thursday I roasted half a head of cauliflower (recipe here) and put it onto spinach-garlic noodles (recipe here) and last night? I roasted a sweet potato and the rest of the cauliflower and we tossed them onto black bean coconut soup (recipe here) OH GOSH amazing :)  Have a great weekend!

I'm a fan of roasted cauliflower, with lemon or curry.
I like it pickled as well.

I'm sure it tasted good. But you can have that blank canvass all to yourself...make all the flavors in the world, and I'll still skip a cauliflower. Thanks anyway!

Cauliflower certainly is the brains of the produce dept.
A few weeks ago I had a dish similar to the one you had....mine was at a vegetarian-asian diner. I had no idea cauliflower could be so good. SO darn yummy....but I know I wouldn't be able to recreate it myself. :(

I made some curried cauliflower the other night that was so good I didn't want to eat anything else.

Isn't it a personal triumph when you can make a recipe yourself like that? Nice job!

You made it sound so good that I clicked on over... and then I read that "roasting the cauliflower intensifies the flavor"... um, okay then... no cauliflower for me!
I only eat cauliflower if I drown it in a mayonnaise/lemon pepper/cheese sauce after microwaving it into submission.
