Roast the cauliflower and do not boil it
We will not cook the cauliflower, instead we will roast it in the oven. Those golden brown edges on the cauliflower are what we want. That gives it depth, because we are deep people. All we have to do is spread the cauliflower florets out on a sheet pan with slices of sweet onion, refreshing lemon, herbs and some roughly crushed garlic cloves. Just mix everything together with the spices because more flavor equals more depth. Once everything is in the oven to toast and we’ve marveled at the ease of this recipe, things get even easier…
Is Roasted Cauliflower on Mashed Potatoes Good for Us?
Cauliflower and potatoes are definitely good for us, even when combined with healthy fats. Potatoes don’t make you fat and are naturally ideal gluten-free and fat-free fillers that come packed with vitamins and potassium. Cauliflower, with its subtle taste, is also full of healthy nutrients and is easily digestible. For health-conscious eaters, cauliflower is a food with multiple benefits. For one, it’s not the richest of the cabbage family at around 70mg of vitamin C per 100g, but it’s quite a lot compared to other vegetables. It also has a finer cell structure, making it easier to digest.
