Caramelized Cauliflower with Olive Oil and Lemon Juice

We’ve always been huge fans of cauliflower—raw, roasted, steamed or any way you name it! We each could eat a whole head in one sitting. We know- it’s a bit much, but true! 🙂 It’s got a bit of a meaty texture and is packed with fiber and cancer-fighting nutrients and hardly any calories–and it can make an amazing stand in for rice, mashed potatoes and even for pizza crust! If you have our book The Nutrition Twins’ Veggie Cure you already know this ;). And if you’re looking for a healthy and simple winter pick me up recipe, we’ve got the goods for you! This recipe is so simple and delish that everyone will love it! Whip this up for an appetizer or part of your dinner meal!
