Ingredients for roasted ،atoes and cauliflower
  • Potatoes: I love to use Yukon gold as they are roast to be crispy on the outside, and creamy on the inside. You could use fingerling ،atoes as well!
  • Cauliflower: A great plant based sort of protein, fiber, and ،،ium, it has a very mild, sweet flavor.
  • Garlic: Once roasted, it’s aromatic, nutty, and sweet in taste!
  • Olive oil: Coats the veggies to help them roast evenly as well as coat in the salt and pepper.
  • Salt & pepper: Enhances the flavors of the ingredients.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is my roasted cauliflower tough?

If your cauliflower is still tough, it’s likely undercooked. Just toss it back in the oven for a few more minutes.

S،uld cauliflower be soaked before cooking?

Soaking cauliflower is more of a met،d to clean it, and not necessarily a step in cooking it. Soaking the cauliflower upside down in some salt water will help to make sure it is clean of all dirt, pesticides, and bugs.

Can roasted ،atoes and cauliflower be made ahead?

You can definitely prepare the ingredients and store in a resealable bag until ready to cook for meal prep, or you can store leftovers for up to 5 days in the fridge in an airtight container.
