Crunchy, Cruciferous, Kid-Friendly Cauliflower


The facet of cauliflower that lends itself to child cuisine is that it doesn't have a strong taste. Hence, whatever spices or preparations you utilize can take center stage.

In our loved ones, we are all about roasting vegetables. It is easy, it is as fast as boiling, and it is yummy. Cauliflower is among our favorite things to roast. Here is how it works. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.

Yeah, that's a hot oven! Take one head of cauliflower and take out the leaves from the base stem. Then, working with a sharp knife, then turn the sandpaper onto the mind, and begin cutting off florets. Once that is completed, discard the stem, and cut florets into uniform pieces about the size of whole walnuts. Put the cookie sheet from the oven on the center rack and allow it to simmer for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, then take a peek in the oven to see how things are moving.

In case the cauliflower has begun to brown around the edges, you are on the right track. Take the pan from the oven and see if it's simple to pierce a floret with a knife. If it's, you're in business. At this time, you can serve it like that, or if your kids have any sense of experience, you may add a sprinkling of parmesan cheese. Trust me, it's delicious. There's something about the caramelization of vegetables that kid go for. I guarantee!

And if that begins a love of cauliflower at your house, I have a further adventure I would like you to try: grilling. Not kidding. Preheat your grill to medium-high, roughly 400 degrees, and instead of breaking your cauliflower into small florets, pretend it's a huge hunk of beef and slice it from stem to tip into 1 inch thick pieces. We call those cauliflower steaks at our house, and you ought to get between 4-6 slices for grilling. Drizzle some olive oil onto your"steaks" and rub it around.

Season the cauliflower slices with salt and pepper and grill it like a boss! Place each on your grill and close the grill lid. Let it cook for about five minutes per side until it is simple to pierce it with a fork and you may see some good grill marks on it. Serve it with fresh, chopped basil and a squeeze of lemon and it might rival the best beef steak you've ever eaten.
