I’m pretty sure you can take almost any vegetable, cover it in cayenne pepper and nutritional yeast, roast it, and it will be undeniably delicious. Such is the case with cauliflower.
I’m an admitted kale chip addict. Note the photo; I’ve learned to keep it on hand at all times because I’ve gone to the store in the middle of the night to ease a kale chip craving and they have been ALL OUT OF KALE which is an abomination! I’ve decided to branch out to other cruciferous veggies so I can be prepared on nights if this should happen again (for shame!).
Here is a super-duper easy peasy recipe for roasted cauliflower that has a surprising sweetness, and I’m not sure if it’s just because it’s white, but cauliflower is so creamy when roasted. It takes 3 minutes to put together and stick in the oven, so you have no excuse NOT to make this.
