Roasted Cauliflower with Orange, Saffron, Honey and Pistachio

This extraordinary recipe was inspired by the talented cookbook author, Alison Day.  I've been exploring a bunch of different recipes with orange and cauliflower these days.  And I just happened to have a whole cauliflower sitting in my fridge.  So I tried out Alison's recipe that I came across with on Pinterest.  

I didn't use parsley, coconut milk, and hazelnut.  I substituted with coriander, almond milk, and pistachio.  I also added a bit of honey to the dish.  It took a bit of time for roasting but it was so worth it!  I was just impressed by the taste.  Both mom and sister-in-law (those two are rather picky with food and they only prefer food with strong flavor aka M.S.G.) loved it, too!  Ha!  Now, that was surprising! 

So, Alison must be doing something right there! :) 

Happy Cooking!
