Cauliflower has been a popular vegetable the past few years, but have you ever tried it roasted? Roasting vegetables at high temperature will bring out the natural sugars to the surface that will caramelize and create a delicious flavor and crunchy texture. Cauliflower is a non-starchy vegetable that is an excellent source of many vitamins and minerals, particularly vitamin C. Try this cauliflower over a bed of spring greens or arugula with added garbanzo beans for a complex carb and added protein. Yum!
