Almond Roasted Cauliflower

Bite size pieces of Almond Roasted Cauliflower.

I've been making my way through Dreena Burton's Let Them Eat Vegan! It really is my favorite cookbook. She's very creative, uses lots of whole grains, and the recipes are very "doable." This recipe is available online.

Cauliflower happens to be one of my favorite vegetables. I generally toss it with a bit of olive oil, salt, pepper, and lemon and roast at 425 degrees until brown. This recipe adds some almond meal and nutritional yeast. I tasted it right out of the oven and was underwhelmed. It just needed "something" so I squeezed some fresh lemon over it. Excellent! This dish definitely tastes better cooled down a tad so you can taste the flavors. I think my original assessment was premature; this was so tasty it was all I could do not to eat the whole head of cauliflower!

If you don't have any almond meal, just buzz some almonds in the blender until finely ground. Be sure to stop before it turns into nut butter. Seriously, just grinding your own would be a lot easier than going on a big search for almond meal/flour.

Be sure to add this dish to your cauliflower repertoire – it's delicious!

  1. Yum! It sure looks delicious! I've found some foods do need to sit for a minute before the flavors really come through. Great tip on making your own almond meal! :-)
