Good Ideas: Roasted Cauliflower w/ Grapes & Red Onion

cauli grape3

Here is yet another way to prepare my beloved cauliflower.

My husband said it was his favorite way so far!

Roasting grapes intesifies their sweetness. Use only red or black grapes.
They are also fantastic roasted with butternut squash.

Cut up a head of cauliflower into florets and toss them on a baking sheet w/ red or black seedless grapes and big slices of red onion.

Sprinkle liberally w/ kosher salt and olive oil.



Roast in a 425F oven for about 20-30 minutes until cauliflower is turning a nice caramel color, shaking the pan a few times in between cooking.



Excellent on its own or as a side to roasted chicken.

Interesting, I never would have thought to roast grapes. Looks great though, I would definitely try it.

I roasted cauliflower last week. The next time, I'm going to try it this way.

Good idea. Those grapes look fantastic.

Interesting how the grapes really manage to hold their shape.

I'm making roasted cauliflower for a cooking class I'm teaching tonight. This is a fabulous idea and I will tell my students about it!

What an interesting combo! It's funny cause I stumbled upon your site through a comment you left at kitchenscraps a couple months ago about popcorn cauliflower. I didn't realize this vegetable is so loved..

I like the idea of grapes with cauliflower, another Stacey inspiration!

Delurking for the first time (longtime reader!) to tell you I tried this dish tonight and my husband went crazy for it. It was AMAZING. The grapes caramelize and swell and burst into something indescribable. I love this dish and I love your blog!

I combined part of this recipe with the other one you have from "Two Dudes." Didn't have grapes, but roasted the cauliflower with onions and later tossed some parmesan, capers and red pepper on them. Very good!

OMG - this was the most delicious and easy dish! I went back to the market for more ingredients!

The grapes really made this delicious! I wish I would have used more than the handful that I did!
