Roasted Cauliflower

So, being on this diet thing, I'm trying to focus on vegetables. That being said, eating a ton of veggies is not always the easiest task, especially when you're not smothering them in melted butter. So, I have tried to find different ways to make my veggies taste good, while not adding in a ton of calories. This recipe is one of those tricks... It's adapted from a Paula Deen recipe that isn't as sinful as most of her recipes are. 

Recipe of the day
Adapted from Paula Deen's recipe {link below}
1 head cauliflower, chopped into florets
2 leeks, green parts sliced 
3 red bell peppers, sliced into strips

and for the dressing...
   1/4 cup EVOO
   2 Tbl lemon juice
   2 Tbl Dijon mustard
   1 Tbl chopped fresh thyme 
   1 Tbl chopped fresh basil
   1 tsp minced garlic
   Salt + Pepper to taste

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together ingredients for the dressing. 
  3. In a large bowl, toss veggies with dressing and mix well {I use my hands to mix- get in there and give it some love}
  4. Spray a 9x13 glass baking dish with non-stick spray, and pour veggies and dressing into dish.
  5. Bake in the oven for appx 40 minutes. I typically will stir it around at least twice to ensure the dressing re-coats the veggies.
