Cooking Light Virtual Supper Club: Fall Favorites (Roasted Cauliflower with Brown Butter)

I can hardly believe it is the 1st of September already!  Where did the summer go?  We spent the last week on vacation in Eurekea Springs, Arkansas with my family from Kansas City.  It was a wonderful way to end the summer!

It's also time again to dine with the Cooking Light Virtual Supper Club!  This month's theme was chosen by Jamie of Mom's Cooking Club and with fall right around the corner (wouldn't know it by the high temps we are still seeing), she chose Fall Favorites. 

I was going to make Roasted Vegetables with Walnut Pesto, but made a last minute change because I just wasn't craving root veggies just yet.  I ended up going with the Roasted Cauliflower with Brown Butter.  And, I am so happy I did!  My Youngest FINALLY decided that he likes cauliflower after trying this version of it!  So, for those of you getting frustrated with your kids picky choices, it just goes to show you that it's important to keep trying and even changing recipes to get them to enjoy different veggies.  I always ask that they take a couple of bites of any veggie served... just in case "their taste buds have changed" and suddenly it tastes good.  Well, it worked last night and he had several helpings of cauliflower for the first time EVER!

I love that you chose this. I've never had roasted cauliflower. How wonderful your son loved it. I have the same philosopy as you when it comes to veggies and having your kids always try them because their tastebuds really do change. I'll be trying this veggie dish soon.

I'm just starting to like cauliflower too...and I'm 24!
This recipe reminds me of an awesome pan seared gnocchi with orange zest and roasted cauliflower meal I had not too long ago.
Mmmm. Thanks for the recipe!

Oh how I wish my son liked cauliflower. Funny he loves brussel sprouts.
