Easy Super Bowl Appetizers: Roasted Cauliflower and Caper Aioli
Who shows up at a Super Bowl party with cauliflower? I do and you should also — this is a perfect dish to make as you can prepare the caper aioli before you show up and then when you arrive roast the cauliflower!
- 1 head of cauliflower, cut
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2t salt
- 1/4t red pepper flakes
- Caper aioli, ingredients to follow
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine the cauliflower, olive oil, salt, and red pepper flakes in a mixing bowl. Mix well to coat and spread on a roasting pan. Place in the oven and roast until cauliflower is tender and slightly browned, about 30-40 minutes.
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1/2t salt
- 1T extra virgin olive oil
- 3T chopped parsley leaves
- 1t caper brine
- 1 garlic clove
Rub the inside of your go-to party bowl with a garlic clove. Combine mayonnaise, salt, olive oil, capers, and caper brine in a mixing bowl — mix well and you are all set. I told you this was easy.
The warm cauliflower dipped in the salty caper ailoi will be a hit at any party you attend or host!
So, we've covered veggies and dips — we now need something a little meaty and heaveier to satisfy those Super Bowl appetites through the game, no? I mean these are great, but generally gone by the first quarter.
It's decided the New England Patriots vs. the New York Giants. Who's it going to be the Pats or the G-Men?
