A great vegetable side will come handy anytime. Whether it is a quick weeknight dinner you want to put together or whether you are entertaining, a crowd favorite veggie side is a must. What better to use, than a cauliflower and how better to make it than roast it. Make it a little fancy by topping it off with brown butter hazelnuts and you are more than good to go!
This dish wouldn’t take a whole lot of time as cauliflower roasts pretty quickly and while it is roasting, you can brown some butter and toast some hazelnuts in it, in less than 5 mins. All this can happen when the main dish is almost done and someone is setting the table for dinner or enjoying a glass of wine.
The butter used here for the brown butter has the seal of Real California Milk. Now, lets talk about why that is important. Real California Milk products are all real food made by real families and what more do we want, other than to look for that seal in any dairy products you buy.
And there is no better time than now to support Real California Milk’s initiative called Seals for Good. This campaign has been supporting families affected by Hurricanes Irma and Harvey and more recently the wildfires in California.
How this campaign works is that every time you or anyone share a photo of Real California Milk seal on social media using the hashtag #SealsforGood, Real California Milk will donate $5 to the Great American Milk Drive. The Great American Milk Drive, in partnership with Feeding America, has delivered more than 1 million gallons of milk to food banks across the country since 2014 to help families get the nutrients they need. So, what are you waiting for? Go Spot the Seal and share away to help all these families in need. No purchase necessary.
