Cauliflower-haters, this is for you.

Roasted balsamic and garlic cauliflowerI’m not sure why cauliflower gets such a bad rep. Just think of it as an albino broccoli. Yes? Okay, maybe not. But still, it is such a delicious vegetable that deserves more credibility than its cousin, broccoli. I have a recipe that will convert cauliflowers into cauliflower-eating-fiends. Yes, it is that good. I’m talking about my roasted balsamic and garlic cauliflower.

There’s magic in the recipe…as in, magic happens when balsamic vinegar-tossed cauliflower goes into the oven to roast. You see, the tangy vinegar sweetens and slightly caramelizes and that, with the garlic, is a match made in heaven. It’s so good. I kid you not, I can eat the entire head of cauliflower when it is cooked like this so please, do yourself a favour and double this recipe. You won’t regret it.
