Roasted Cauliflower and Tomatoes

An easy summer side dish that goes with everything!  The cherry tomatoes become incredibly sweet when roasted and the cauliflower takes on a delicious, golden nuttiness.

  • 1 head of cauliflower, divided into bite sized pieces
  • 1 C. cherry tomatoes
  • 3-4 scallions, optional
  • 2 T. olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • fresh basil or parsley, chopped

Heat the oven to 400 degrees.  Spread the cauliflower, tomatoes, and scallions on a rimmed baking sheet.  Drizzle the olive oil over the veggies and toss to coat.  Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper.  Roast 20-25 minutes, tossing halfway through.  Sprinkle with a little chopped basil or parsley.  Serve hot or room temperature.

  1. That looks amazing. Sadly, my wife won’t eat cauliflower, but I’ll keep drooling.
