Dijon Roasted Cauliflower with Capers Print Recipe Print Recipe

Have we met?

Sadly, it’s been awhile.

The tightness of my pants can attest to that…

Looks like it’s time I get reacquainted with this lovely head of cauliflower. Mmmm…

Chop chop.

I haven’t [completely] lost it and gone to eating just raw veggies. Keep reading…

I love mustard. Ketchup, not so much.

This is a great [healthy] vegetable dish that can be served as a side or lunch and add grilled chicken or shrimp for protein!

Ready. Set. Tightness be gone!

If your allergic [or sensitive] to gluten, be sure to check the label of your mustard.

    I’m a huge fan of roasted cauliflower but I definitely don’t eat it enough. I’m adding cauliflower to the grocery list! Thanks for the inspiration.

    I think most mustard is inherently GF. Sort of like rice or quinoa. Yes, it CAN have gluten in it and it can have binders and additives that are full of gluten, but it’s one of those foods I personally don’t worry too much about but as I type this, of course, for those that are super sensitive, read the labels and do as you see fit. I am not that sensitive that i have to seek out special mustard. And oh boy, do i love mustard. I have written entire posts about it. lol

    Your cauli creation looks awesome!!

    When I stop stuffing my face with tomatoes, squash, and eggplant I’ll have to give this a try. I LOVE cauliflower. And I’m with you…. I’m a mustard girl.

    What an innovative recipe. I discovered roasted cauliflower this winter and LOVED it. I’ve never paired it with mustard, though. Bookmarking this to try soon!

    My parents came to visit last week, and let’s say my jeans are fitting a little more snug today too. Glad to see you posting again 🙂
