Roasted Ranch Cauliflower

We have been on a cauliflower “kick” lately. Truth be told, I didn’t actually realize it until I sat down to write this post, but this is the third cauliflower-featuring recipe in a row. Whoops! I hope you’re finding it as versatile and delicious as we are. I promise the next recipe will be completely different.

This recipe takes a childhood favorite of mine—ranch dressing (I wouldn’t eat vegetables without either ranch dressing or melted cheese!)—and dresses it up a bit, while removing the dairy. The flavors are subtle, but work perfectly with the sweet roast-y goodness of the cauliflower. Serve it as a side with any chicken, pork, beef or even game meat, and enjoy!

Ingredients
1 tsp nutritional yeast
2 tsp dried parsley
3/4 tsp dried dill weed
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 C avocado oil
1 small head of cauliflower (about 1.5 lb), chopped
1/2 tsp fresh chives for garnish

Method

Preheat the oven to 425° F. Blend yeast, parsley, dill, garlic, onion, pepper and salt with avocado oil using an immersion blender or other blender (or whisk vigorously by hand with a whisk or fork).

In a large bowl, pour oil and seasoning mixture over cauliflower and toss to completely coat.

Spread out on a baking sheet, and roast for 20 minutes. Stir and then roast for an additional 10 minutes.

Before serving, sprinkle chives over the cauliflower for garnish.

    we roast cauliflower a lot at home with various recipes but have never used nutritional yeast. i’m guess it has the richness of amino acids from the fermentation process. gonna try it at some point. thanks for sharing!
