The cooking style affirms winter, while the vegetables portend spring. Baking is a method I use in cold weather, but these colorful baby cauliflower are seeds of tomorrow’s spring.
6 baby cauliflower: 2 green, 2 orange and 2 purple
6-7 basil leaves
1-2 Tablespoons EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil)
a few pinches sea salt
Process Preheat the oven to 350°F. Trim any outer leaves that are wilted or brown on each of the baby cauliflower heads. Wash each head well by immersing it in water.
Drain the cauliflower well. Chop the basil leaves into fine strips.
Place the baby cauliflower in a roasting pan. Drizzle the olive oil on them, sprinkle the sea salt and top with the chopped basil.
Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes. Serve.
