First item: Cauliflower
My husband loves cauliflower. I am not the biggest fan typically mostly because it tastes sort of bland. A patient of mine recommended roasting it. Oh my goodness, it is like candy. It is so sweet and the roasting really deepens the flavor. I kept it very simple and seasoned it with olive oil, salt, and pepper.
Second Item: Center cut pork chops
I love center cut pork chops. I grew up having them quite a bit. We typically grill them or I cook them in tomatoes with herbes de provence. This time I tried someting different. I always have champagne vinegarette in the house.
2 TBS of dijon mustard
2 TBS of champagne vinegar
1/2 tsp of salt and pepper
1/2 tsp of dried thyme
1/3 cup of good olive oil
So, I mixed 3 TBS with 1/2 cup of plain bread crumbs and 2 TBS of fresh, chopped parsley. I then packed in on top of each chop and bake them for 25-30 minutes. Delicious!
