YaYa’s in the Kitchen with YoYo!
YoYo is excited to wear his birthday gift from special friends. His own apron!
Prepare the cauliflower by washing and trimming.
Slice the cauliflower into one inch pieces. Yes, some will fall apart, it’s fine!
Brush or use your hands to put olive oil on both sides of the cauliflower. We baked on parchment as it helps with clean-up!
Season with salt and pepper. We used a combo of Himalayan and Kosher salts and freshly ground mixed pepper.
Roast at 425 degrees F for about 35 minutes (carefully turning once midway when the bottoms are golden brown) and cooking until both sides are golden brown. The time will depend on your oven. We cooked ours 45 minutes total.
Now, spoon on your favorite marinara sauce. We used our all time favorite homemade sauce from Aunt Carla’s recipe. We prepared it last Fall with the freshly picked tomatoes from the local farm we visited. Since it was frozen, we simmered it and added a bit more tomato paste to thicken it.
Next, we sprinkled each piece with shredded Parmesan and mozzarella cheeses. Save some of each cheese for adding when you serve. Broil till bubbly & melted!
How gorgeous is this ooey gooey melted cheese on our beautiful cauliflower?
We served it with a crisp mixed salad and a crusty warmed multigrain baton. Of course, we drizzled Denissimo balsamic from our friends at Smashing Olive! Garnish with more cheese, fresh basil and red pepper flakes. For the recipe and more details…
