Roasted Cauliflower and Blue Cheese (Week 45)

Will wonders ever cease!  My sweet husband (the man who typically can't boil water) was in the kitchen on Wednesday making dinner (wearing a camo apron that read "Grill Master"...befitting!  He pushed me out of the kitchen, refused any help and said to rest up till dinner.  This can mean a good thing or a bad thing depending.  Tonight was a huge surprise (at least it was for me).  He made grilled chicken breast (marinated in ranch dressing) and roasted cauliflower.  It was amazing and here's his quick and simple recipe:

  • 1 head of cauliflower, with the flowers removed from the core, washed and separated
  • 1 cup baby finger potatoes (yellow and purple - from Costco), chopped in 1 to 2 inch pieces
  • a few tbsp Bari olive oil
  • Cajun seasoning
  • powdered garlic
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cu blue cheese crumbles.

Take the potatoes and cauliflower and put in a microwave bowl and cook till just tender (about 3 minutes).
In a grill pan, pour the oil oil and add the potatoes and cauliflower   Sprinkle with Cajun seasoning, garlic salt, and pepper.  cook till slightly charred (golden brown not black as in burned).  Remove from heat and sprinkle with blue cheese.  He is really, really surprising me!! DE-lightful!!


  1. was! Not only was it simply wonderful but it was a huge SHOCK that he came up with grilling the cauliflower without cracking a cookbook or watching a cooking show!! A-mazing!
