Sensational Roasted Cauliflower with Apples and Dill, Gluten Free + Vegan

November 17, 2011

Ccauliflower is one of my all-time favorite vegetables. Not bland and boring as some recipes (ahem, steamed or boiled) would lead you to believe, cauliflower is seriously healthy, versatile and delicious! (Did I mention it comes in awesome colors like orange and purple?!) Seriously, this recipe could not be any easier! Chop, toss, bake, chew, enjoy! This recipe is extremely allergy friendly: gluten free, milk/dairy free (GFCF) and vegan, also soy, corn, egg and refined sugar free!

Roasted Cauliflower with Apples and Dill
Serves 4

1 large head of cauliflower (or 2 small heads - I love using different colors!) about 2 1/4 lbs
1 lred onion, trimmed and sliced
2 apples, cored and diced - no need to peel! 
3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil 
1 tsp kosher salt 
Fresh ground pepper to taste
1/4 cup fresh dill, coarsely chopped

Preheat the oven to 450° F

Cut your cauliflower into florets, discarding the woody stem. Line a baking sheet, roasting pan or casserole dish with parchment paper. Place cauliflower, onion and apple on the parchment, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt pepper. Bake for 40-50 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes, or until cauliflower is golden brown and apples are tender. Transfer roasted vegetables to a serving bowl, stir in the fresh dill and serve!
