Bourbon Brown Butter Roasted Cauliflower | Richmond Moms
 
 
 
 
Although turkey gets a lot of attention on Thanksgiving—it is nicknamed “Turkey Day” after all—we have come to realize it’s all about the sides. From brown sugar-laced sweet potatoes to green beans topped with fried onions, the comfort food dishes surrounding the turkey are the real stars. This year, we’re adding a few new, veggie-rich dishes to our menu, like this roasted cauliflower dish from The Local Moms Network contributor Kate Bowler of Domestikated Life. Infused with bourbon and maple syrup, it has all the flavors of the season, with less carbs than mashed potatoes or stuffing, making it a perfect side to serve all fall and winter long.
