Amid a flurry of pumpkin milk shakes, pumpkin scones and other yummy fall eats I am the first to admit that roasted cauliflower seems a bit boring in comparison. However, I literally told Erik as I was eating this for lunch the other day that it was as good as french fries. And if you’ve been a reader of my blog for a while you know I’m not fooling around with a statement like that.

Roasted cauliflower is freaking delicious. I don’t know why I don’t make it more often. From now on I will be.

Roasted cauliflower


One head of cauliflower, washed and cut into florets
1-2 Tablespoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon of onion powder
Salt and pepper


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Arrange the cauliflower on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with garlic powder and onion powder and toss to coat everything evenly. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Place in the oven for about 25 minutes or until the cauliflower begins to turn slightly brown on top.

Did I mention I am back on Weight Watchers after two glorious years of not being on it? Please send fruit and other point free food items to help me to get through this. It’s only been a week and a half and it has been going alright. Having a new Blendtec blender (amazing, I will have a full review on it within the next couple weeks) has helped as I’ve been drinking a lot of smoothies. I’ve also been filling up on lots of fruits and veggies (like this cauliflower) and making healthy meals. We’ll see how it goes. Wish me luck.
