I just happened to have the two main ingredients for this Roasted Cauliflower and Mushroom Salad recipe and it couldn’t be simpler!
It really took very little time to prep and bake. Simply cut your cauliflower into bite-size florets, clean and halve your mushrooms and toss them together in the simple marinade.
I know it’s recommended to wipe your mushrooms to clean them, but I’ve found that rinsing them under running water works just as well. Once these are all coated in your 4 ingredient marinade, you’ll just pop these in the oven, and they are ready in about 25 minutes.
So hearty and filling, you can top them over a bed of Arugula for some freshness.
Cauliflower is such a powerhouse of a vegetable. It’s part of the cruciferous family, which means it’s loaded with cancer-fighting, gut-nourishing fiber. Cauliflower is a good source of Choline. Choline which is a B vitamin that boosts brain development, improving cognitive functions; learning, and memory.
This vegetable is low in fat and calories, making it a wonderful vegetable to implement into your diet. High in Vitamin C, B6, mood-boosting magnesium, and potassium making it nourishing to our muscles.
