Cinnamon Cumin Roasted Cauliflower

2011 November 11

My husband adores raw cauliflower.  He doesn’t like it cooked so much.

So he didn’t even try this side dish.  I guess he didn’t try it, though, because I was being extra generous and cooked him a side of steamed green beans so he wouldn’t have to try it.

Hi.  I’m Branny.  And I’m an enabler.  Good thing I don’t have kids.

Look.  You can see his plate right there.  Brimming with chicken tikka masala and no cauliflower (just take my word for it and don’t object saying “but only 1/4 of the plate is showing!” Trust me, there’s no cauli).

It ended up not being too big of a deal, though, because I ate the cauliflower for dinner and is was awesome.  And then I put away the leftover cauliflower, well, I tried to put away the leftover cauliflower.  I accidentally ate every single floret on its way for the roasting dish to the tupperware.  It was really that good!
