Roasted Cauliflower Greens sheet pan meal

You are reading it right, it is CAULIFLOWER GREENS in this easy sheet pan roast veggie recipe!!!

Having been in weeks of social distancing and reduced grocery trips, you might start to recognize some veggies that have longer shelf life so they can last longer in your house until who knows when to get out of the house again. ⁠

If you are craving greens but found that other tender leafy greens do not last long, you might want to give these otherwise-in-the-compost-bin cauliflower greens a try!

These often overlooked ingredient tastes so sweet and crunchy, and the leaves crisps perfectly in the oven!⁠ (Just like kale chips do!)

I made this sheet pan roast early in a rushing morning, when food preped was running low for our lunches. It was less than half an hour from start to finish!
