I think we all know I love roasting veg. But if you didn't you do now! Roasting veg is great (See told you I loved it!!) It is easy, makes veg taste amazing and if you line the tins there is zero washing up. Now that is a win win win situation. Roasting just works! Think about the sweet Mediterranean vegetables: capsicum, onions and zucchini. Or the warming and wintery pumpkin, carrot and potato. They are all perfect when roasted slowly in the oven with some olive oil and little more than salt and pepper.
Today though I am following on from my roasted broccoli and sharing roasted cauliflower. I actually don't like cauliflower, I hated having to eat it as a kid and it the one vegetable that I avoid cooking now as an adult. But when cauliflower is roasted it takes on a totally new identity. The harsh sulphur tastes vanishes and you get a much sweeter and nuttier taste.
Isn't it beautiful!
Of course I can't help but throw in some wonderful red onions because we all know that roasted onions make everything better. Sweet, juicy and just yummy! And then there is the smell of rosemary roasting. Get a steak in the pan, cook it
for the merest of minutes to your liking, add a knob of butter and serve up an elegant, simple and beautiful Monday night dinner.
