Roasted Nutty Cauliflower

Roasted Nutty Cauliflower

Cauliflower used to be my husband’s favorite vegetable, but I’m happy to say that now it’s my whole family’s favorite vegetable! It shows up on our dinner table as a side dish several times a week, and this sweet and nutty version is the kids’ favorite. They love the sweet and crunchy texture of the dish, and I love the pop of color along with the mixture of of curry powder, mint, and hazelnuts.
