Roast Cauliflower — YES, CAULIFLOWER #Vegan

This is SO GOOD, you wouldn’t believe it!

cauliflowerI have a wonderful new toaster oven, which here is its pitcher:

ToasterOven

Ain’t she a beaut?

She’s a Cuisinart Custom Classic Toaster Oven Broiler. I resisted getting a new toaster oven for years, because the old Magic Chef worked JUST THE WAY I WANTED IT TO. Actually, I got two or three new ones, but I hated them and gave them away. Finally, Charlie put his foot down and asked. That’s how we put our feet down in this family: we ask. Yes, we do live in the American Midwest; how did you know?

ANYWAY, she works a treat, as witnesseth this baked cauliflower.

You take a head of cauliflower, cut out the stemmy bit, and cut a few thick slices out of the middle. Save the leftover bits for something else.

Spray or brush both sides of the slices with olive oil and sprinkle with seasoning. As usual, I used Jane’s Crazy Mixed-Up Salt.

Bake at 400F for about half an hour, or until it’s as tender as you like.

The stuff next to it is vegetable stir-fry with Pad Thai sauce. Also good, also vegan.

    WOW! Cuisinart! And one can bake something in it for 30 minutes!? Not just for toast anymore!

    And the Crazy Jane Salt. Oh,, yeah.
    We also like Spike. Apparently, Spike has some history to it; it’s been around a while. Used it a lot in the ’80’s,then couldn’t find it for a time;; now you can again!

    Good cooking!

      Oh, absolutely, toaster ovens are actual li’l baby ovens now! I do almost all of my baking and broiling in the toaster oven.

      I even like the mushy ones, especially mashed cauliflower: Cook it until it’s completely soft, drain it, mash it, season it with butter, salt, pepper, garlic (if desired), and cheese. It’s really really good!
