Ode to Golden Brown & Delicious

Oil plus salt plus heat.

A magical equation.

A delicately flavored vegetable, the humble cauliflower: transformed by science.

Pale florets, singed like beach babes slathered in baby oil, pulled from the oven mere moments before they tumble off the edge into burnt.

Delicate becomes bold, subtle becomes nutty, mushy turns to crispy.

And broccoli? The food many abhor as children becomes impossible to ignore.

Roasted-Broccoli

Oil plus salt plus heat equals magic or Maillard (or are they one in the same?)

Oh, crispy toasty brown bits, how I adore you.
