Roasted Cauliflower with Romesco Sauce (DF, and GF)

I’ve been visiting Michigan for a few days and I must say, it is a fantastic place to see! I was impressed with the amazing variety of foods offered at the local eateries, and the mini-vacay was much needed. I have many new recipe ideas and a few traditional recipes that I modified to make them Gluten-free.

This tantalizing sauce is a great accompaniment to fish, beef, pork, poultry or roasted vegetables. The sauce originated in Northeastern Spain and is found in many different variations all along the Mediterranean Coast.

Whether served as a dip, sauce or sandwich spread, it will take your mundane meal to an exciting delicious gourmet feast. Impress your guests with the delightfully rich taste of the Mediterranean Coast.
