"Green Eggs and Ham was the story of my life. I wouldn't eat a thing when I was a kid, but Dr. Suess inspired me to try cauliflower."
-Jim Carrey, Comic

The refrigerator light goes on...

If you are a garlic lover, this is as good as it gets. For some folks the garlic may be too much, but I wanted this to have that rich, creamy (almost overpowering) garlic flavor. This is a great dish served with a filet of whitefish like grouper or cod prepared very simply. The two will complement each other well.

If you are not a garlic lover, just use less garlic. Start with only about 4 cloves of the roasted garlic and adjust to taste.


Roasted Cauliflower with Garlic

Servings: 4 | Serving size: 6 ounces cauliflower

Cooking Time: 90 Minutes

This recipe can easily be multiplied and makes good leftovers. Reheat until the cheese melts.

This recipe also requires making Roasted Garlic.

1 medium head fresh cauliflower (broken into flowerets)
3 tsp olive oil
2 medium bulbs roasted garlic
1/2 cup 2% milk
1/8 tsp salt
fresh ground black pepper (to taste)
3 ounces part skim milk mozzarella (grated)

Preheat the oven to 325°F.

While the oven is preheating break up the cauliflower and place in a medium mixing bowl. Add the olive oil 1 teaspoon at a time, tossing to coat the cauliflower. Place the coated cauliflower in a 10 inch oblong Pyrex dish and place the dish in the oven.

Mash the roasted garlic into the milk. Add the salt and pepper while mashing. Place in the refrigerator until needed.

Let the cauliflower roast and toss it every 15 minutes. After 60 minutes add the garlic sauce and toss to coat well. Roast another 15 minutes and toss.

Top with the grated cheese and place in the oven. Cook until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
