This Curry Roasted Cauliflower is a curry lover’s dream! Fresh cauliflower packed with delicious curry flavor and roasted to perfection. I bet you can’t eat just one!
You know what I find fascinating? Hearing about different people’s nighttime rituals. Like what happens in their home between the hours of 8-11 pm. I’m not sure why I find it so fascinating….except for the fact that after talking to a number of different family members and friends, I realize just how different everyone’s night looks. I guess I always assumed everyone else was just like me! Ha!
So here’s how my night goes: the kids are all in bed by 8:30, at which point I could totally crash if I let myself. But, of course, I don’t. Because nighttime is my work time! So I head downstairs, do some quick clean up, grab a sparkling water….or a glass of wine….and then a snack. Always a snack….before settling in on the couch with my computer. Because…it’s part of my ritual. Quite possibly my favorite part. Behind the wine, if the wine is happening. Of course.
I’m not sure what it is about nighttime snacking that’s so intriguing. But there’s just something about snuggling up on the couch with the perfect little snack that feels pretty much perfect. Am I the only one? Maybe it’s because I know that my entire night will be spent working, so the snack really is the highlight. Regardless, I always know I need to choose wisely. (The last thing I want is for the highlight of my night to feel like a huge disappointment!)
So here’s where things get interesting. I’ve recently discovered that one of my favorite nighttime snacks is roasted veggies. I know, I know. You can feel free to throw things at me now. But seriously. Roasted veggies are the BEST late night snack! I love Parmesan Roasted Green Beans and Garlic Roasted Asparagus and Maple Bacon Roasted Butternut Squash….and I especially love this Curry Roasted Cauliflower. Cauliflower is probably my FAVORITE vegetable to roast, and the curry twist makes this Curry Roasted Cauliflower out of this world delicious! My new favorite snack for nighttime or anytime! And I have the feeling it will become your favorite, too.
