What to Serve This Cauliflower With
This cauliflower is sure to delight even picky eaters. Garlic does an excellent job of elevating the flavor of any dish, and this cauliflower is certainly no exception. With an easy, flexible side dish like this, you have many options regarding what to serve it with.
First, try serving it with some chicken! It's quite common to serve vegetables with chicken. Since chicken is a healthy meat to eat, it makes sense that you'd want to keep the health trend going by including some vegetables. This cauliflower is a great accompaniment.
Another great idea is to serve this cauliflower with some turkey. Sometimes, you get bored of serving the same asparagus and mashed potatoes with your turkey dinner. If you're looking to switch things up, this roasted cauliflower is a great choice.
This cauliflower can also go great with fish. Any fish will do, so pick your favorite or what's most affordable for your family. Salmon and tilapia are great choices that are often readily available, either fresh or frozen. Just make sure you're sustainably sourcing your fish.
