Roasted Cauliflower

Ok… so after apartment hunting, job hunting, training for a half marathon – it hasn’t left much time for blogging. But I really want to make this work. We decided to nix moving and stay where we are. I did get a new job though. It’s pretty cool and it’s part time, so it should give me the time I want to work on the blog and do volunteer work and spend lots of time with Sunny. Yay!  It may take me a bit to navigate everything and get into a good routine. Until then, I leave you with this lovely cauliflower recipe.

I have a hard time getting into “winter” foods since we live in sunny California. We’re not much for soups and stews. But we did get a bout of rain for a few days, so I was leaning more towards warm, comforting foods. And I was inspired to make something simple that could be a nice side dish or added in something else, like OhSheGlows Dal recipe. Oh my goodness is it ever good in dal.

Roasted Cauliflower
1 medium head of cauliflower, thoroughly washed, de-stemmed and cut into bite-sized pieces
2 tbsp of coconut oil, melted
1/2 tsp of cinnamon
a pinch of salt

Preheat the oven to 375 and start preparing your cauliflower. Place the chopped cauliflower into a large mixing bowl and add the melted coconut oil, cinnamon and salt and stir until well combined. Bake for 30-40 minutes, until a fork can be easily inserted into the cauliflower and it is slightly browned.

  1. That is great about the new job! Hopefully it will be a better fit. :)
    I am enjoying summer foods – watermelon, grapes, blueberries. Sadly the peak cherry season has ended. Lots and lots of homemade electrolyte drink for after my sweaty bikram yoga classes. Salads and rolls.

    1. It’s such a better fit!!! It’s the best fit =) Like a comfy shoe that you never want to take off!
      Ah yes – it’s summer there! Too bad cherry season is over, but at least you are still enjoying lots of great fruit. I would love to hear more about your homemade electrolyte drink – have you posted about it on your blog?

      1. I haven’t posted about it, I have been making it from the No Meat Athlete cookbook. But basically it is mixing 4 cups water, 2 TBS ACV, 2 TBS maple syrup, 1/4 tsp salt and some grated ginger, and letting it sit overnight. You can make assorted flavour variations as well. I have definitely noticed that it helps me feel better faster after a yoga class, rather than just drinking a lot of straight water.

  2. Congrats on the new job Kimmy! The balance can be hard to find (since adopting Chester, I am still struggling to find it!) but you’ll find a way to manage everything, I am sure.

    This cauliflower recipe looks amazing, as always. I am going to try it as I am doing all I can to get Andrew to eat more of it!

    1. Thanks Kate! I imagine it’s hard working full time with a puppy. It’s a big change.
      I’m finding my way… right now that means not much blogging, but I’m finding that I’m not particularly stressed getting other things done, so that makes me happy.
      It is really good! It’s especially good in stews in soups. I bet even Andrew likes this one 😉
