Katrina's Inspiration
"My favorite vegetable, cauliflower makes many an appearance on my plates. Cauliflower has a mineral, earthy taste, which makes it ideal for roasting and cacao. A hot oven will intensify these flavors. Unsweetened cacao also carries an earthy note and a sprinkling of the dark powder performs magic, boosting the depth of the roasted flavor. Most palates will recognize the enhancement, but will likely not be able to identify the magic ingredient."
