Honey Mustard Roasted Cauliflower
Spruce up your vegetables with a sweet, tangy coating.

I love cauliflower - raw in salads, sauteed in stir fries or roasted in the oven. A certain kosher cookbook a few years back brought the vegetable back into vogue with "popcorn caulifower" - florets roasted with oil and spices. This version brings it up another notch - dousing the cauliflower in honey and mustard before roasting it until the edges are cripsy.

It can be a little hard to evenly coat the cauliflower in the dressing before roasting, so I used a little trick I learned from my mother: Dump all the cauliflower and dressing in a large ziploc bag and shake, shake, shake to disperse. You'll have an even coating in no time!


1 medium head cauliflower

3 tablespoons honey

1 tablespoons whole grain mustard

1 tablespoon dion mustard

2 tablespoons oil

1/3 cup bread crumbs

Cut the cauliflower into very small florets. Mix together all the remaining ingredients until smooth. Coat the cauliflower in the dressing mixture (a zip-top bag works well for this) Spread the cauliflower in a single layer on a greased baking sheet.

Roast on 425 F for 30-40 minutes, until tender and crispy. Serve hot.

I followed this recipe to the letter, and it came out soggy.

I've made a version of this recipe a zillion times. It's great.
