When I first saw the concept of a whole cauliflower roast, I knew I hit the jackpot for the perfect Thanksgiving centerpiece. It looks impressive, tastes incredible, and it's a beautiful way to present vegetables as the centerpiece of a meal. I've toyed around with a couple different variations of roasting a whole cauliflower, and ultimately settled on this recipe from Hot for Food, one of my favorite cooking channels on YouTube.
I followed their recipe almost exactly, with a few slight variations, but most importantly, I added MUSHROOMS into the gravy. I had oyster mushrooms in the fridge, which are my absolute favorite. The mushroom gravy made this dish feel even more "centerpiece-y" with the addition of the meatiness of the shrooms. YUM.
The directions for this dish seem long, but the whole process is actually pretty darn simple!
