Roasted Cauliflower with Mushrooms and Olives

Serves: 3

Ingredients
  • 1 12oz bag fresh cauliflower florets
  • 1/3 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup pitted kalamata olives, sliced in half lengthwise

  • cooking spray
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
Method
  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.

  3. Meanwhile, place buckwheat groats in a dry skillet over medium heat and toast, stirring continuously, until just browned, about 3-4 minutes. *Watch them closely so they don’t burn*
