Roasted Sweet Potato and Cauliflower with Garam Masala ~ Side Dish

I was talking to my friend the other day and as usual our conversation quickly turned into a discussion about what to make for dinner. For the most part, I try to plan meals ahead. With two little kiddies and a busy schedule, meal planning becomes a survival tool. There are times, however, where the spontaneous-creative-fun-cook has to come out and whip up a delicious dinner that everyone will love, including my three year old very opinionated toddler. Any parent of a toddler will tell you they are your biggest food critics. You really have to take your cooking skills up a notch with these fussy little monkeys!!

So here is a delicious little side dish that is approved by 1 fussy toddler, 1 eleven month old foodie and 1 meat and potatoes loving husband. I was really skeptical about roasted cauliflower, but after trying it out for myself, I can assure it’s absolutely delish! Garam masala is a really awesome warming Indian spice mix that I often use when I’m cramped for time. It has a healing mix of cloves, coriander, cumin bay leaf and cardamom. Enjoy!!
