Roasted Cauliflower with White Cheddar Cheese and Dill
Cauliflower is a forgotten vegetable for me. I like it but I commonly don't think of it as an option. Cauliflower is a very nutrient dense food that is low in carbohydrates. I roasted the cauliflower with some chicken stock and cheese. Next time I make this I think I will cut the cheese amount at least in half. This was extremely tasty but I think it would be just as good and obviously more healthy without it. The cauliflower wasn't as strong in flavor as I remember.
Roasted Cauliflower with White Cheddar Cheese and Dill 1 head of cauliflower with the white florets cut into bite size pieces 1/2 cup chicken broth 1 tbsp dried dill weed 1 tsp kosher salt 1/2 cup black pepper 4 ounces white chedder cheese grated.
Heat oven to 375 degrees.
Place the cauliflower in a baking dish. Drizzle the broth over the cauliflower. Toss. Sprinkle the dill, salt, and pepper along with 1/2 the grated cheese. Toss. Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 of the cheese over top. Bake in an oven heated to 375 degrees for 40 minutes. Enjoy!
Food is so intriguing. I’ve always loved to cook whether it’s casual and simple or complicated and elegant. After living in the Midwestern United States all my life I find myself jumping between All-American foods and foods from other cultures. There is definitely a sense of comfort with cooking and enjoying food that I’ve grown up with.
I have a voracious curiosity to learn about all cultures, especially the Middle East/Mediterranean, Indian, Chinese, Vietnamese, and Thai foods. I’ve learned that a simple curry dish or an Asian dumpling can transform your mood and be just as much of a comfort food as the foods you’ve known you’re whole life.
It is fascinating to me how each culture has such a diversity of ingredients, and when used with different combinations and cooking techniques you can easily transform the same few ingredients into a multitude of dishes. The unfamiliar, the diverse ingredients and techniques, can be intimidating to many people. I’ve created this blog to chronicle and share my explorations in the kitchen so that hopefully you will want to start experimenting in your kitchen.
