Balsamic Whole Roasted Cauliflower

Balsamic Whole Roasted Cauliflower

I am crazy about easy side dishes. This one just might take the cake. Minimal prep time, and no chopping (yay!). Seriously, all you do is mix up an easy spiced balsamic drizzle and pour it on top of a whole head of fresh cauliflower. It doesn’t get much simpler than Balsamic Whole Roasted Cauliflower.

You’ll kick yourself once you try it.  Why? For not having done it before. One of those major “DUH” moments for me. Can’t wait to try this again with all types of toppings and spices. The only limitation to the roasted cauliflower dishes you can create is your imagination.

Wanna know the best part? This simple and flavor-packed side dish is low-calorie and low-carb.
