Pan Roasted Cauliflower

I stumbled across this recipe a few weeks ago and thought it sounded fabulous (I heart cauliflower): http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/10/27/pan-roasted-cauliflower-w_n_1058594.html. I saved it for when it got a little cooler outside here in San Diego. I made it this past Friday evening, although I made a few changes to make it more Paleo friendly 🙂

Recipe Substitutions:

  • I used a handful of walnuts instead of pine nuts
  • I used organic raw coconut oil (Paleo friendly)
  • I used raw, organic honey instead of refined sugar
  • I used dried parsley instead of fresh
  • I used three garlic cloves, instead of 1
  • I used extra pinches of crushed red pepper (awesome extra spice to the dish!)

Preparation Changes:

  • I used a 12 inch pan for the pan fry step, and once it was ready to bake, I simply dumped it into a glass pyrex baking dish
  • I did not measure anything (I can tell you I used more than what it called for with the nuts, cauliflower, raisins, garlic, and crushed red pepper)
  • I did not soften the raisins
  • I did not drain, peel or seed the tomatoes, I simply cut cherry tomatoes, in half!

It was a fulfilling roasted vegetable dish (not to mention, gorgeous), that I will make again! My version took probably 1/2 the time compared with the original recipe, and is Paleo friendly!

  1. YUMMY!!! I made a bastardized version of this last night – missing some ingredients (or their reasonable substitutes). Thumbs up around here from 3 out of 4 of us, but Bradley wouldn’t knowingly eat cauliflower, so I consider it a resounding success!

Tell me what you think!
