  2. WE LOOOOOVE cauliflower so any new recipes are so appreciated!!! Can’t wait to try this one!! My mouth is already watering- Haha!! Thanks!

  3. this looks so delicious! since it’s a side dish, can you suggest some things that might be good to pair it with? I don’t know anything about the taste of turmeric so I’m not sure what would work! thanks!

  4. Do you think this would work with broccoli? I love the idea of watching our favorite TV show with friends. I’m going to make it happen.

  5. Do you mince or chop the garlic or just throw in whole cloves?

  6. TV + jammies + friends + food = BEST time ever! Love this & the gorgeous turmeric colored cauliflower!

  9. We moved to our farm almost eight months ago. This weekend my husband is getting started on building us book cases for the downstairs room. After that we will get/make and entertainment center. Some comfy seating and we will be set to entertain in that area. I’m really looking forward to it.
    And we love any flavor of roasted cauliflower.

  10. I want to make this so bad…and I just might since I have cauliflower in the fridge. My kids love cauliflower, isn’t that funny. I don’t make it enough, but I do love it. That turmeric is such a pretty color.
