Love this recipe! It really is perfect for using up leftover vegetables. I've added onions several times, last night added leftover asparagus to it. Staple dish for sure!

I made this recipe a couple nights ago and the whole family loved it. I omitted the olives because I'm not a fan. And rather than put sun-dried tomatoes in the sheet pan, I used them in a side dish: baguette slices topped with soft gouda cheese and sun-dried tomato, baked in the oven during the last 10 mins of the other dish's cooking time. I wish I could have found unsliced pepperoni, because the slices I bought were a bit thin: thick-sliced pepperoni would have been much nicer. But altogether, a big hit! We'll definitely be adding this one to the regular dinners list.

Oh my goodness, how ingenious is this and how grateful am I for it! It sounds unreal and in the midst of a kitchen renovation, the perfect low maintenance countertop-oven dinner solution. I couldn’t be more excited to make this for us and for our toddler.
Thanks so much for the kind words, Cynthia, and so happy this recipe is finding you at the right time! Hope it's a hit, and best of luck with your kitchen renovation!!

This sounds so delicious and I'm in a kitchen renovation too. I'm going to use my Traeger at 425 and maybe add pre-roasted chicken too when I add the cauli mixture. Thank you Emily!

Emily, this looks so darn good. Couldn't agree/relate to more to every. single. word. Can't wait to try!
Thanks so much Ali! Glad you can relate to this, and hope your little ones like it if you try it! : )

First of all, I love EmilyC! Second of all, cauliflower is my favorite vegetable and I’ll eat it a thousand ways. Alison Roman’s pasta with cauliflower is incredible. Buffalo cauliflower “wings” are another staple. Timothy Pakron (Mississippi Vegan) has a great roast cauliflower with a delicious almost marinade-like seasoning. I also love a good whole roasted cauliflower. And cauliflower cheese, that odd sounding British dish! Avant Garde Vegan does a wonderful vegan version. Oh and I can’t forget Melissa Clark’s cauliflower parm! Okay, I think that’s all my favorite ways. Heh heh
Aw, thanks Cait! Thanks so much for sharing all of these favorites -- a great list!
