I’m a planner. Organized, not too spontaneous, and just a little bit of a control-freak. Just a little! I like to plan everything from what clothes I’m going to wear for the week (making sure my outfit is laid out the night before), what errands I want to run, what recipes I want to test, and what plans I’m going to make with family or friends. I’ve always been like that and I don’t see myself changing anytime soon.
In addition to scheduling my weeks, I also like to plan out what meals the hubster and I will have. I research different recipes, look through cookbooks, and make a grocery list. If I can prep meals ahead of time, then I do that on the weekends. Makes my job easier during the weeks!
But one area that I have a hard time finding ideas for are new side dishes. The hubster and I try to eat healthy for the most part and usually end up eating the same types of side dishes. Asparagus, green beans, or some other quick veggie. And while I love those greens, I decided to cook up one of my other favorites, cauliflower!
This Roasted Garlic Cauliflower is easy to prepare, gluten-free, and full of flavor. It’s also a fun and creative way to jazz up this veggie! And even if you’re not a huge fan of cauliflower, I guarantee you’ll like this! The garlic, paired with a touch of Parmesan, creates a delicious flavor combination.
And the prep time for this Roasted Garlic Cauliflower couldn’t be easier. Simply cut up a head pf cauliflower into pieces and spread onto a baking sheet. Drizzle some olive oil on top, followed by garlic powder, salt and pepper. Roast in the oven for about 20 minutes and then top with some grated Parmesan.
One bite and you’ll be hooked! The crispy cauliflower and combination of spices creates a delicious side dish, perfect to fit any meal!
