The first time I had this dish was at my friend Mary’s house. Mary and her husband are strict vegetarians, and when they invited me for Thanksgiving, I was left wondering exactly what would be on the menu. After all, most of us sit down to turkey on that special day, or even push the boat out with a turducken!
So, it was with some trepidation that I set off to Mary’s house, and I was more than a little worried that they would feed me a few greens and carrots, and not much else!
Silly me, I needn’t have worried, and dinner turned out to be a scrumptious affair, loaded with taste and texture. It was only really as the meal came to a close that I realized I hadn’t eaten any meat!
One of the highlights of the meal was this roasted cauliflower dish I’m going to share with you today. It was really simple, but also very delicious, and boy was it filling too!
As an added bonus, it’s a low carb dish that’s not just healthy, it could help you lose weight too, although that does depend on what else is on your dinner menu!
