In The Kitchen - Dijon Roasted Cauliflower

Ever since cauliflower was named one of the top food trends of 2014, I've been searching for new ways to spice it up as a side dish.  My favorite way to cook cauliflower is to roast it, as it adds another dimension to the flavor.  I love dijon mustard, particularly Maille Dijon Originale Mustard, and wanted to try roasting cauliflower that's been tossed in a dijon mustard sauce ... it's divine!

Here are two great recipes:

Here are some fun facts about cauliflower from the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction:

  • Cauliflower is a good source of vitamin c.
  • Cauliflower is a cruciferous vegetable and is called this because the flowers have four petals and resembles a Greek cross.
  • Cauliflower is actually a flower that hasn't developed yet.
  • Cauliflower is white due to the protective leaves growing around the head so they are not exposed to the sun.   
  • Green cauliflower is produced when you cross cauliflower with broccoli.

  • Check out my Almost Egg White Egg Salad recipe for another great way to use dijon mustard (particularly Maille)!

    Buon Appetito!

    Please note:  I am promoting Maille dijon mustard as it's my favorite and I feel it is far superior to any other dijon mustard available .  I have received no compensation from Maille for mentioning their product.
