Caramelized Onions and Cauliflower

I decided to share one of my favorite vegetarian sidedishes. We love it for the taste, but also for the colors. It just screams autumn. If you aren't able to get colored cauliflower, you can use the regular. It will taste just as delicious.

Ingredients

For the Cauliflower

  • 2 to 3 large heads organic cauliflower, purple and orange when we can find it, cut into florets
  • 2 T olive oil
  • freshly ground salt
  • freshly ground pepper
For the Onions

  • 2 large sweet organic onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1 t balsamic vinegar
  • freshly ground salt
  • freshly ground pepper
Procedure

For the Cauliflower
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Place cauliflower in a large, parchment-lined or silicone-lined baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast until beginning to brown with some crispy bits, approximately 40 to 45 minutes.


For the Onions
Heat olive oil in a large, flat-bottom pan. Add onions and cook until they soften and turn translucent, approximately 20 to 25 minutes. Add balsamic vinegar and stir to coat. Cook until deeply caramelized, approximately 15 to 20 more minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

To Serve
Place your cauliflower in a large mixing bowl. Add caramelized onions. Toss to combine. Serve immediately - though this is also just as tasty cold the next day.


We served this as part of a completely vegetarian dinner with fresh slaw, roasted delicata squash, and a massaged kale salad. Yum!

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
