Super Simple, but super experiment with Cauli!!!

So it was a super simple meal last night....just some pork cutlets, cauliflower, and some kicked up scalloped potatos. But, I did do an experiment I have been wanting to try, which was "Roast Cauliflower". I have been skeptical, but I must say.....

Here is the cauliflower, in a metal pie pan, tossed with EVOO, S&P.....A bit of rub on a couple pieces for the hubby, ready on the Egg....Pork cutlets on the egg also, rubbed with JH Pecan rub.

Here is the cauliflower, about 10 minutes later...Well, let'd just say, it didn't make it to the table!! :blink: It was really fantastic!!!

And just to finish, a few pork cutlets....A couple with Carnivore Robust for me!! (I love the Carnivore for sure!!!)

Sorry, no pics of the scalloped potatos. Cooked them first on the Egg, on a couple bricks for indirect. They turned out great.

But honestly, you should try the roasted Cauliflower!! It ROCKED!!! First time I've eaten Cauli without cheese unless it was raw!! lol And the Carnivore sauce really set the pork apart!

Thanks for looking! Simple meals are great, and so is the Egg. ;)

    The Princess makes mock mashed potatoes with boiled cauliflower. I'll bet making it with roasted cali would really kick it up several notches!

    Been thinkin of roasted cauli since seeing Fred do some last year. It does look delish and when it's fresh as it is now, it's time to go. Thanks for the reminder.

    Freds' recipe has been a favorite of ours since he posted the video. It really tastes like the sauce has butter in it :P

    LC, looks like a nice experiment with the cauliflower. I love roasted cauliflower with Indian spices. Now you've started another carving! :lol:

    Did it stay crisp or soften some?
  • bitslammerbitslammer Posts: 818
    It seems like now the only way I ever cook vegetables is to grill, roast or sautee them. I've given up on boiling or steaming them almost completely. There's just so much more flavor it seems. Woked green beans with some nice charring on them are to die for.

    Will have to try the Cauli,always looking for tasty ways to include the veggies.


    GOOD EATS AND GOOD FRIENDS

    We cut it up stick it in a plastic bag and shake it with salt, pepper and some orange infused olive oil that we picked up in Sonoma - adds a great additional flavor when roasted!!!

    Good stuff.
