Roasted Cauliflower

I know, I know, I roast a lot of vegetables. How is this different? Well, truthfully it's not very different. However, the seasonings are slightly different for this one so I figured it was blog worthy. I love buying whatever fresh vegetables are on sale and finding yummy ways to prepare them. I think it's easy to get stuck in a rut of eating the same vegetables from a can, raw, or steamed. Add something a little different once in awhile and you are less likely to get bored and more likely to eat more vegetables!

Roasted Cauliflower
1 head cauliflower
olive oil
1 tsp. garlic powder
1-2 tsp. curry powder
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper

Chop the cauliflower by first pulling off the leaves. Then cut out the core from the bottom. Then you can use the stems as guides to cut into bite-sized florets. Toss the cauliflower in about 2 Tbs. olive oil. mix together the bread crumbs, cheese, curry, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Then toss cauliflower in the bread crumb mixture. Dump onto an ungreased baking sheet and bake at 375 until tender and slightly golden brown (about 20-25 minutes).

Next time I get a head of cauliflower this is how I will make it! Minus the Parmesan. (Or do you think it won't work without the cheese?)

Hehe, I love how you say "blog worthy" because Jared always asks me if what he cooks for me is "blog worthy."
