This is Amy Katz from Veggies Save the Day. One of my favorite ways to enjoy cauliflower is to roast it with Dijon mustard, olive oil, garlic, and salt and pepper. If you're not a fan of Dijon, you can also make it with whole ground mustard or spicy brown mustard. The key to the perfect mustard roasted cauliflower is to use your hands to toss the cauliflower florets in the mustard mixture.
You want every nook and cranny well seasoned. Then spread the floret out in a single layer on a baking sheet and roast in the oven until the cauliflower is tender and lightly brown. You can also use an air fryer if you prefer before serving. Garnish the cauliflower with some fresh dill. Even people who don't love cauliflower will enjoy this dish.
You can find this easy vegan recipe by visiting veggiessavetheday.com and searching mustard roasted cauliflower. I hope you enjoy the recipe.
🛒 Before You Checkout
What you need to know before you checkout at the grocery store or market:
The best place to buy cauliflower is going to be the farmer's market. When in season in your area, most markets will have a vendor or two selling it. Typically I find these prices to be better than the grocery store and you can find some really large heads. Also farmers like to sell orange, purple, and green colored cauliflower as they are very attractive on a table.
When you buy them directly from the farmer they are going to last longer in the fridge. I highly recommend looking at your local farmer's market when cauliflower is in season in your area. In Michigan, I see the great quantities of it in late summer/early fall.
