Almond Butter Roasted Cauliflower

One day I'll have to make some one elses' recipe and NOT change anything.  But then again, often my tinkering ends in deliciousness.

This recipe was inspired by Dreena Burton's Almond Roasted Cauliflower, but I was intrigued with the idea of subbing the olive oil and almond meal for almond butter.  I used my father-in-law's birthday bbq last weekend as an opportunity to try it, and even among the 'not-always-fond-of-overly-healthy-food' set, it was a hit!

2 heads cauliflower, cut into bite sized pieces
1/4 cup almond butter
2 tbls nutritional yeast
1/2 tsp Herbamare or regular sea salt
Boiling water

Whisk together almond butter, NY, and salt.  If your almond butter is liquidy, you may only need to add a few tbls of boiling water (Mine was rock solid, because it was the bottom of the jar, so I had to add a whole 1/2 cup or more before I could even start whisking).  Toss with cauliflower and then spread cauliflower on a baking sheet.  Roast at 350F for 35-45 minutes.

I've entered this recipe into Diet, Dessert & Dogs last Wellness Weekend of 2012!
