This kid-friendly cauliflower recipe is a family favorite
If you or your family aren’t fans of traditional steamed cauliflower, then this kid-friendly roasted cauliflower recipe is for you! I know first hand because my husband did not like cauliflower until he tried it roasted.
Now he gobbles it up every time I make it. So does my daughter, the meat eater. In fact, the last time I made this recipe, she ate only cauliflower for dinner. I’m all for encouraging balanced meals, but I would call that a mommy win.
