Talking Roasted Cauliflower With Nutty Lemon Mustard: Vegetarian

We've made this many, many times. It never fails to please! Great flavors. If you don't like cauliflower, you might want to try it this way first. I bet you'll like it much more than you think you will. The original recipe called for quite a bit of half-n-half...since we're not a "low carb" group, we'd want to modify that a bit. Suggestions are in red below.

Roasted Cauliflower With Nutty Lemon Mustard
From: Lose Weight The Smart Low-Carb Way by Bettina Newman, R.D. and David Joachim
Makes 4 servings

1 small head cauliflower, cut into small florets
3 Tablespoons walnut or olive oil [walnut makes for great flavor!]
¼ teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
½ cup half-and-half [I recommend a mix—a little half-and-half with some 1% or 2% milk, or some FF half-and-half with some milk]
⅓ cup toasted walnuts, coarsely chopped
⅛ teaspoon ground black pepper

Preheat the oven to 450º F.

In a roasting pan, toss the cauliflower with 2 tablespoons of the oil and the
salt. Roast until tender and lightly browned, stirring once or twice, 15 to 20 minutes.

In a large bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, mustard, half-and-half, and remaining 1 tablespoon of oil. Add the cooked cauliflower, scraping any residual oil into the bowl. Add the nuts and pepper, and toss to coat. Serve warm.
