As you know if you read my post on 5 Reasons to Eat the Rainbow Every Day, I am a firm believer in eating a large variety of colorful foods every day. Not only does it keep mealtime more interesting but it’s one of the easiest ways to stay healthy.

The mission is simple: fill half your plate with fruits and vegetables and stay active to help make a difference in the fight against breast cancer.

Roasted Potatoes and Cauliflower

You know I love brightly colored foods like green Swiss chard and purple eggplant but did you know that white produce is also loaded in important health benefits? Made with creamy yukon gold potatoes, caramelized garlic, tender cauliflower, and fresh scallions, just one serving of Garlic Roasted Potatoes and Cauliflower will provide more than a day’s recommended value of Vitamin C and 6 grams of heart-healthy fiber.

In the meantime, add these Garlic Roasted Potatoes and Cauliflower to your next meal plan. If your family is anything like mine, it’s going to be a new favorite.

Your fork is waiting.

    This was sooo good. I am not normally eating seconds of vegetables but this was great. I used Russet potatoes because that’s what I had, and they were fine. My only issue was peeling the vegetables off of the foil – I’d consider not using foil next time. Thank you, and I’ll look at more of your recipes in the future!

    Do you roast the garlic unpeeled? When do you remove the skin?

    1. Liz DellaCroce Avatar
      Liz DellaCroce

      Yes exactly! I remove it before I eat it like you would a shrimp tail.

    I love the recipe so simple but very tasty…..I added Brussels as I love them to it added a bit more color and was delicious. Had some leftovers so I made a cheese sauce and put it over them for the next day. Double recipe!

    I have just read through ALL your cauliflower recipes and I love the ideas. I am a vegetable lover although not a vegetarian and these recipes are brilliant. Sometimes you just can’t think of a new way to cook these wonderful vegetables. Thankyou for your inventiveness!

    Are you supposed to peel the garlic cloves prior to roasting? Or do you roast them with the peels and then peel before serving?

    1. Liz DellaCroce Avatar
      Liz DellaCroce

      I don’t but you can! We just pop the cloves out of the skin before eating them. :)

    skip the plastic big and just use a large bowl….plastic adds toxins to our environment which increases the risk of many cancers.

    The directions seem to indicate that the potatoes do NOT get added to the bag and tossed to coat. Is that correct? Only cauliflower through pepper get put into the bag?

      Oh my goodness Jen, that was a typo!! Yes you add the potatoes!! I fixed the recipe – so sorry for the confusion!
