Bursting with fresh flavors, this Crispy Chimichurri Cauliflower is sure to be your new go-to side dish recipe. Easy to make and even easier to eat!
Ok, we need to talk about a little something.
I may have an obsession with cauliflower. NEVER in my life would I think those words would come out of my mouth.
But I literally feel like Buddy the Elf...
It is a staple on my grocery list every week and there are just so many different ways you can prepare. Of course there is the classic buffalo route, which I've shared with you time and time again - Ultimate Vegan Buffalo Cauliflower Sandwich, Roasted Cauliflower Buffalo Pizza, Buffalo Cauliflower Tacos, Beer Battered Buffalo Cauliflower Wings and Buffalo Cauliflower Quesadillas.
Ya, it tastes pretty good with buffalo sauce.
But my newest favorite way to prepare this cruciferous veggie is by roasting it with another one of my favorite things on this planet...chimichurri sauce.
Oh yeah! Crispy roasted cauliflower, and fresh, bright, delicious chimichurri are combined into one dish.
Dreams really do come true.
I have to say that these two really are made for each other.
I would serve this as a side dish, over a salad, or perhaps in tacos??? Check back tomorrow when I'll be sharing the recipe for a tasty taco recipe that will take this cauliflower to the next level.
