Roasted Cauliflower and Brussel Sprouts with Pears and Walnuts

So I started out on a “what can I find and combine in my fridge” mission tonight and this is what I came up with in the end.  It was delicious.  Subtle flavors, very wholesome, slightly sweet.  Great as a vegetarian meal (serve over wild rice) and as a nice side dish.  It would pair great with roasted pork or chicken.005

  • 1 head of cauliflower, cut into pieces
  • 1 bunch of Brussels sprouts, trimmed and cut in half
  • 1\2 cup sliced red onion
  • 1\2 cup walnuts (I broke mine up a little bit)
  • 2 Bosc pears, skin on and thinly sliced
  • 1\3 cup crumbled bleu cheese
  • 3 tablespoons organic honey
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons diced fresh ginger

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Combine all your ingredients (except the cheese) into a large bowl and stir until it’s all blended well.

Pour into a shallow baking dish.  Bake for 40 minutes.  Stirring occasionally.  Stir in the cheese as soon as you remove it from the oven.
