Only way more healthier.
Or ridiculous pet picture.
But you know,
there's absolutely nothing interesting about cauliflower.
It's a cruciferous whoop de whoo whoo bloop whatever I want cheesecake I got bored reading about it.
This Parmesan-Roasted Cauliflower
is so tasty though...onions, garlic, cauliflower, FRESH thyme, olive oil and yummy fresh PARMESAN!
This recipe came to me via the Facebook page of the facility I work out at: Performance for Health.
Uh Okay, it's the place I, uh, possibly need to haul my behind to a lot more than I do possibly.
Is being lazy so bad, in the whole scheme of things,
Performance is an awesome workout facility though...professional athletes even use the facility in the off season.
I know that to be the case cuz I was working out next to a professional football player a couple times last year. Uh huh.
I KNOW this NFL football player was impressed with my awesome weight lifting lifting of the weight thing and bar thing, but was just too embarrassed probably to ask for guidance from a girl, but whatever. His loss.
You don't know. You weren't there.
Anyhoo, let's get back to this Roasted Cauliflower dish.
Not many ingredients for this super tasty side dish.
So cut up the cauliflower, onions,
and smash that garlic in the skin.
OH! I halved the recipe by the way,
since there was only two of us,
and only one of us eats cauliflower.
if you use the knife to cut the cauliflower,
you get clean cuts and the vegetable will lay flat on the pan.
And look prettier too.
So take the
and smashed garlic
and spread them out on a cooking tray.
Drizzle with olive oil.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper and throw the sprigs of thyme on there.
You're not done yet...
don't get too antsy,
after taking out the pan....
...SPRINKLE THAT YUMMY PARMESAN CHEESE ON TOP!
Roast for 10 more minutes...
And remove from oven.
By the way,
the smell of the roasting cauliflower and onions and garlic is amaaaazing!
you want to start eating it right off the tray.
But don't be a heathen.
Plate some up for real.
I'm not exaggerating when I say this was like candy.
Okay. I am definitely making this again and again...
and so flavorful
and especially so healthy.
Here's the recipe...printable is on the right hand side.
1 head cauliflower
1 sliced medium onion
4 thyme sprigs
4 unpeeled garlic cloves
3 tablespoons olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
Preheat oven to 425°F.
Cut 1 head cauliflower into florets.
Toss on a large rimmed baking sheet with 1 sliced medium onion, 4 thyme sprigs, 4 unpeeled garlic cloves, and 3 tablespoons olive oil.
Season with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Roast, tossing occasionally, until almost tender, 35-40 minutes.
Sprinkle with ½ cup grated Parmesan, toss to combine.
Roast until cauliflower is tender, 10-12 minutes longer.
Okay guys, that's all I have for today!
Giblet Pearl has a few words she would like to
I like to hang out inside my Dad's shirts and my Mom's zippered hoodies.
Is that so wrong?
P.S. Mom asks that you disregard any pet hair you ever see on her clothes, it is a losing battle she says.
Have a good weekend guys, I may be posting an earthy quinoa and mushroom casserole recipe later today.
Doesn't a quinoa mushroom casserole sound super exciting??
It was oddly satisfying though.
Okay, we'll talk at ya soon!!!!
