Makes 4 to 5 Servings


One small to medium cauliflower

3 Medium leeks

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 teaspoon pepper/sea salt combo


Preheat the oven to 425°F.  Cut the cauliflower into medium florets.   Slice the white part of the leek into thin rounds, breaking them into little “rings.”  and rinse. Place the cauliflower, leek, oil, and pepper/salt combo in a 9 x 13-inch baking dish and toss to coat evenly with the oil.  Bake until the cauliflower starts to brown and the leek “rings” become crispy, 35 to 40 minutes.  Stir the vegetables halfway through to ensure even cooking.
