Roasted Cauliflower + Apple With Almonds + Pomegranate Seeds

Here’s another prostate-healthy recipe perfect for your Thanksgiving celebration!

Roasted Cauliflower and Apple with Almonds and Pomegranate Seeds

This recipe is a quick way to get the health benefits of autumn produce. Autumn brings crisp cauliflower, sweetly acidic apple, earthy almond, and the tangy brightness of pomegranate. By roasting most of the ingredients, their full flavor is heightened. This recipe makes a delicious Thanksgiving salad or side. In November and December, we often make this dish as a nutritious and quick lunch salad. If you can’t find or don’t like pomegranates, dried cranberries work just as well.

1 medium head of cauliflower, cut into medium-sized florets

1 Fuji apple, medium diced

3 tablespoons balsamic vinaigrette (see recipe in The New Prostate Cancer Nutrition Book)

¼ cup roasted almonds, chopped

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 teaspoon lemon juice

¼ cup pomegranate seeds, or dried cranberries

Salt and pepper, to taste

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

2. Wash and cut the cauliflower into medium-sized florets. Toss the cauliflower in olive oil, salt, and pepper, and spread it out on a roasting sheet or glass pan. Dice the apple, toss it in lemon juice, and set it aside.

3. Start by roasting the cauliflower. After twenty minutes, toss the apple in with the cauliflower. Make sure the apple is coated in oil already in the pan. Continue baking for another 7-10 minutes, or until the apple and cauliflower are cooked through, and the cauliflower is slightly caramelized.

4. Let the apple and cauliflower cool, about ten minutes.

5. In a large bowl, mix the almonds, cauliflower, apple, balsamic vinaigrette, and pomegranate seeds. Check the mix for proper seasoning: you will probably need to add a pinch or two of salt and pepper.

6. You can serve this dish cold as a salad; or if you’d like it as a dinner side dish, warm it slightly before serving.
