Oven Roasted Cauliflower & Clif Z Bar Winner

Hi everyone!

As you can see I have been playing around with the background color of the blog. I was getting sick of the old background, and it was taking quite a long time to load. For now I am going to keeping it all white, but I am open to any suggestions that you guys may have! Do you think I should go with a solid color or a pattern, add some photos to the header (I think I will), or leave it be? I am open to anything, really! I’m also looking to completely switch over to a self-hosted server, but am not sure exactly how to go about it. I know it is quite a lengthy process, (or maybe it might just seem like one to me since I’m not all that tech savvy) so I want to make sure I cover all my basis before I make the switch. Any insight would be much appreciated! I value your opinions, keep ‘em comin’! Now onto something a little more tasty! ;-)

Oven Roasted Cauliflower

Although I love almost every vegetable out there, I will admit that sometimes veggies can taste a little bland if they are constantly prepared and eaten the same way. For me, bland food is simply not enjoyable, so I am constantly thinking up new ways to spice up my veggies, especially cauliflower.

Before I started roasting my cauliflower, I would just steam it, add some salt and oil, eat it for the nutritional value and call it a day. Now don’t get me wrong, I still think that steaming veggies is a great way to prepare them. It’s fast, easy and effective, but lets be serious, there is only so much flavor that can be brought out by steaming a vegetable! Roasting is definitely my cooking method of choice when it comes to veggies. Not only is this amazing cauliflower recipe quick and easy to make, it is full of flavor and healthy too! Even your cauliflower hating husband, and non-vegetable eating children will like it! Promise ;-)

Yields 1 head of cauliflower

Ingredients:

  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 1/2 cup of olive oil
  • 1.5 cups of plain breadcrumbs
  • 4 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
Directions:
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Place a pot of water onto the stove and bring to a boil.
  • Cut cauliflower into small florets, making sure to remove the entire green stem.
  • Rince the cauliflower with cold water, and then add  to the boiling water.
  • Boil for 5 minutes, remove from water and drain well.
  •  Once cauliflower has slightly cooled, mix salt, olive oil, pepper, garlic powder and breadcrumbs into the same bowl.
  • Once mixed well, evenly spread cauliflower onto a nonstick cookie sheet.
  • Roast for approximately 10 minutes (or until one side of the cauliflower is golden brown), then turn cauliflower over and roast until it is golden brown on both sides (approximately 10 more minutes).

Enjoy!

  1. I love cliff bars! I’ve been stocking up on their new ‘protein bars’, I’m addicted to the pb and chocolate one :) You roasted cauliflower looks super yummy! Believe it or not…I’ve never cooked cauliflower before…I don’t know how thats happened but I seriously need to give it a try! Yours looks delish!

  2. This looks delicious!! I definitely want to try it out soon.
    As far as making the switch over to a self-hosted server, I say go for it. It’s definitely a learning process, and I still don’t have it down, but I love my blog so much more since I’ve made the switch from blogspot to wordpress. If you’re moving to self-hosted WP, I would check out WP for Dummies, and there is also a ton of tutorials on the web. let me know if you have any questions. I’ll do my best to help!

  3. This looks great. Recently, I have an obsession with roasting cauliflower or any veggies. It will be more of a problem in summer when it is hot. I have never had a clif bar ever in my life haha. I admit, the ingredients of it freak me out a bit. I love to make my own bars.
