Cheesy Roasted Cauliflower

March 24, 2017

Why I haven't shared this recipe before, I'll never know.

These delicious roasted cauliflower bits have been a favorite of mine for years and I make them pretty often, granted just for myself and not exactly to share. No one else in this house loves cauliflower or nutritional yeast as much as I do... so why waste my nutritional yeast on them.

But really, does anyone else do that? I keep some of my crunchy things to myself.

These are the easiest to make, I go between these as a dinner side dish or just lunch for myself on a Saturday. 

Start off with a whole head of cauliflower, and chop it into bite size pieces.  Be sure to preheat your oven to 425.

Drizzle over some olive oil and then salt and pepper to taste. 

Next comes to good part, nutritional yeast. I'll be honest I don't buy the Bragg brand, it's pricy. Instead, I've found that if you can buy it in bulk it's much more cost effective. I actually bought a 1 lb bag that I've kept in the freezer for a few years now that only cost me 10 bucks. 

I picked up this box on my Amish adventures over Mardi Gras break. In the event you're close to Summertown, TN you have to check out Yoder's Homestead Market. Buy the hand pies, you won't regret it.

Generously top your cauliflower with nutritional yeast. Sometimes I even use my big metal Ikea bowl and put everything together in there first, slowly adding more yeast until the cauliflower is completely drenched. I use about 1/4 of a cup when I do this. Sometimes less. start out with a tablespoon and see where it goes.

Bake them for 30 minutes or until they are golden and crisping up. These could have gone longer, but I was impatient and was dying to eat them.

Here's another tidbit that I do that Jeremy thinks is weird, I dip them in ketchup. It's divine. Last weekend I actually had some of the Against All Grain Sweet and Sour Meatballs sauce leftover and dipped them in there. Heavenly.
