Who knew cauliflower could be so darn tasty. I changed it up a bit roasted the cauliflower and at the few minutes added some shredded carrots and walnuts for some crunch. I did not have horseradish but I had wasabi paste so I used that instead. It was so good I did not share.

looks delicious. do you think I can just mix the sauce with the veggies and roast?

No, I don't think think I'd do that because the mustard sauce would fade out during the roasting process. It's just fresh and vibrant when you do it as instructed. Enjoy!
