Not all things orange in October are made out of pumpkins. And not all Halloween food needs to be creepy or spooky. Let me introduce you to Orange Cauliflower. It’s not sweet. It tastes like regular cauliflower. It’s just orange. And it screams, “Fall is here!”
I have seen online and in magazines that you can roast a whole head of cauliflower and I knew I had to try it with my orange version. The recipes out there vary, from parboiling then roasting to roasting at 450ºF. Since I didn’t want to burn my house down, I lowered the temperature.
I also kept it simple, as I don’t like to drown my veggies with sauces or goop. So this Whole Roasted Cauliflower is roasted with extra-virgin olive oil and seasoned with just salt and pepper and a squirt of lemon juice.
Yes, it’s orange. And it’s a cauliflower. Why not serve something healthy at your Halloween party?
