ROASTED CAULIFLOWER SALAD

roasted cauliflower salad | designlovefest

i buy at least one cauliflower a week from the grocery store or farmers market. i always have lofty plans of attempting to make the fried cauliflower from the Jerusalem cookbook but i end up taking the easy way out and roasting it in a cast iron pan because it’s so delicious and easy. i think the secret to a good roasted cauliflower is to keep cooking it and when you think it’s done cook it some more. i wash mine, slice it and place it in a pan with some olive oil and garlic salt and pepper. i generally roast it for about 45 minutes – an hour (or more if needed!) at 425. taking it out and stirring it just a couple of times during the cook time. i also like it with a little hot chili oil and red pepper flakes on top for some spice.

we decided to make roasted cauliflower salad today and i’m really happy with how it turned out. the sweetness of the maple bacon and the freshness of the mint were a killer combo. give it a try or make your own version and tell us how it goes! – joanie

• preheat oven to 425. next cut your cauliflower into pieces, put in roasting pan and top with 2 tablespoons olive oil, salt and pepper. mix together and put in oven, should take about 45 minutes to cook. 5 minutes before it’s done roasting, take it out and add the currants, mix and return to the oven to finish.

• while the cauliflower is in there you can add the bacon to start cooking in the oven on another rack, place foil on the pan, place bacon on top and cook for about 10-15 minutes or until crispy. you can also cook on the stove top. remove and break into pieces, set aside.
