Maple Syrup Roasted Potatoes & Cauliflower: Healthy Eating

Maple Syrup Roasted Potatoes & Cauliflower

It is Maple Syrup time here in the Northeast and for some reason I keep seeing a lot of cauliflower recipes which reminded me of an old recipe that I haven’t used in a long time. It came from an Indian cookbook that I no longer own, so I had to make it up. I think it this recipe tastes better than the old one, so enjoy!

    1. Maybe because it's sweet or it's association with pancakes, but if I put Maple Syrup in something my kids will eat it.

  4. This looks great! We do curried cauliflower with garbanzo beans. I'd never thought to just roast potatoes alongside the cauli! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Unfortunately, because of the warm winter we had a bad Maple Syrup season so the price is probably going to get even higher.

  9. This was perfectly lovely, and so easy! I just filled the pan with some potatoes, the random amount of cauliflower in the freezer from last year's garden, drizzled some olive oil, maple syrup, tossed it all with a few pinches of turmeric and cinnamon. And loads of salt/pepper. Truly lovely. Adding it to my "Make again and again!" pile. Thank you so much!
