Roasted Cauliflower, Sausage & Green Olives

This is a simple but flavorful dish that you'll enjoy again and again. It's definitely going in my weekly menu rotation. Serve alone, on rice, or with a tasty gazpacho or other first course soup. Based on Chef Yotam Ottolenghi's recipe, I highly recommend his cookbooks, and check out his recipes at The Guardian (they also have an app). Well worth it. The guy is a creative genius and works magic with vegetables.


1 large head of cauliflower, broken into bite-size florets
6 oz. Field Roast Mexican Chipotle Vegan Sausages (2 links), cut in chunks
1 large red onion, cut in wedges
1/4 c. pitted green olives, cut in half
2 cloves garlic, peeled, smashed and cut in quarters
2 T. pumpkin seeds
2 tsp. sweet smoked paprika
3 T. olive oil
1-1/2 tsp. salt
freshly ground pepper to taste
3 T. chopped fresh parsley (for garnish)

Preheat oven to 425-degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Put all ingredients, except parsley, in a large bowl and mix thoroughly. Pour the ingredients onto the baking sheet and spread out to one layer. Roast for 30 minutes, stirring ingredients after about 15 minutes, until cauliflower is softened and getting some color. Remove from oven, let cool for about 10-15 minutes. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and serve.
