Roasted Cauliflower with Za’atar

Alexandria, Virginia

I’ve been obsessed with za’atar since the fabulously fresh stuff I found at the Carmel Market in Tel Aviv.  I love the sweet earthiness of the blend.  And I’ve been obsessed with cauliflower and za’atar together ever since the amazing dish my friend and I enjoyed at Newport‘s La Vasca.  So I put together this healthy, low-carb, vegetarian, Mediterranean-inspired recipe.  I hope you like it too.
