I am a big fan of The Biggest Loser...a Tuesday night "reality" TV series where seriously overweight people commit to a healthier diet, lifestyle and to the workout trainings of Bob Harper and his peer, Jillian Michaels. I love watching it and cheering on the contestants.
Bob, this The Red, White and Food is for you. Each step you take and encourage us to take makes a difference...walk on!
Here is a vegan recipe from Bob's website, http://www.mytrainerbob.com/ and for more information on The Farm Sanctuary's walk and other activities, click here: http://www.walkforfarmanimals.org/ and don't forget to tune in tonight to The Biggest Loser!
2 heads of organic cauliflower (I get mine from the farmers market, you can get purple, orange, or white)
Core and cut cauliflower into uniform pieces.
Heat oven to 400 degrees.
2 Tablespoons good quality olive oil
5 sprigs of organic thyme (picked/pulled from stem)
2 garlic cloves (smashed and skinned)
2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
sea salt and cracked black pepper
You will need 1 large baking tray/sheet tray.
Arrange cut cauliflower onto sheet tray and sprinkle with olive oil,red wine vinegar, thyme, smashed garlic, and season with salt and pepper (Don’t like salt? Don’t add). Gently toss and place into hot pre-heated oven.
Roast cauliflower until golden brown and soft.
Check after 30 minutes. Everyone’s ovens are different. If it needs more cooking time, give it more time.
The cauliflower will taste nutty and the acidity from the red wine vinegar adds a beautiful tart yet sweet flavor! Serves up to 4 as a side dish.
Enjoy! PS- you can also do this with carrots, potatoes, onions, broccoli, green beans, brussel sprouts, etc.
