Quick Roasted Carrots and Cauliflower with Walnuts

Cutting your vegetables into small pieces and roasting at a very high temperature not only ensures your side will be ready quickly, it also caramelizes the vegetables, enhancing their natural sweetness. Roasted cauliflower has a great meaty quality to it so if you are going for a meatless meal, double the recipe and make this the star of your plate.

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

Roast the vegetables until tender and lightly browned, about 25 minutes, stirring once or twice. Season with more salt and pepper.

Meanwhile, cook the walnuts in a small skillet over medium heat, stirring, until toasted, about 5 minutes. Pour into a small bowl and toss with the parsley, lemon zest and remaining 1 teaspoon oil. Sprinkle over the roasted vegetables.

    Hey everyone - stop reading and head for the kitchen!

    Although neither a fan of carrots or cauliflower, was looking for something new. Good news, fortune favors the bold because This recipe hits the jackpot.

    Recommend a tad more lemon zest and in-shell walnuts, rather than store bought and chopped; but otherwise this hits it out of the park with a wonderful texture, good taste, and pretty presentation.

    This is a great vegetable recipe. Roasting always adds great flavor. My husband is not a cauliflower fan but he thought this was just great. I'll be making this one again!
