I saw this new way to do cauliflower and thought we'd give it a whirl. We don't usually eat the stuff, because the boring way I steam it is just, well, boring and bleh. Anyhow, the girls and I threw some cauliflower florets, seedless black grapes, and thick slices of red onion on a roasting pan. Then we drizzled everything with olive oil and sprinkled on lots of kosher salt (which seems like normal salt to me, but whatever).
I thought it tasted heavenly. Great flavor, good textures, and the grapes gave it such fun little bursts of flavor. Yum! TubaDad liked it too, and he's usually very lukewarm on cauliflower. The girls didn't like it at all, but to be honest they don't like any vegetables right not, which is a little distressing to me because they used to love all vegetables. The only veggies they'll willingly eat right now are steamed broccoli with ranch dip, frozen peas and frozen corn (served frozen), sliced raw cucumber, plain steamed green beans, and baby carrots. That's about it. Which is kind of a bummer. Anyhow, I'm hoping it's just a phase, and still serve a variety of vegetables whenever I can (which is not often enough, I'm not going to lie) and tell them they at least have to eat a little each time. If you have any vegetable recipes that your kids will actually eat, please share.
