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.

I know what you might be thinking…butternut squash soup is supposed to be blended and creamy. Pureed until smooth. But I really wanted to combine the butternut squash with other vegetables. More colors. Healthy ingredients. Hearty bites.

This lightly seasoned broth is full of vibrant squash, fresh spinach, mushrooms, peppers and cannellini beans. Every spoonful is packed with different flavors and textures.

The best part? This Simple Fall Butternut Squash Soup contains vitamins and antioxidants to help boost your immune system.
