Roasted Cauliflower

We got home late last night. I weighed myself this morning and had gained a little over 3 pounds. John gained 1 pound. So I guess I didn’t do too badly except for it is the first time this year that I’ve gained weight. Probably it happened in the last week of the trip. It became increasingly difficult to choose the right things.

It is time to get back on track especially with Thanksgiving next week. I’d like to lose all or most of the weight by then. So, I went food shopping today and bought a ton of vegetables. A really good way to treat yourself with vegetables is to roast cauliflower. Preheat the oven to 500 convect. It goes much more quickly on convect. Regular roasting takes at least twice as long. Cut the cauliflower into florets and put them on a sheet pan. Spray with olive oil spray and sprinkle with salt. Bake them until they are crispy brown. (You have to keep an eye on them. I think mine baked for about 20 minutes.) Add additional salt right after they come out of the oven if you feel they need it. We ate these for a snack at faux cocktail time.
