A simple yet flavor packed vegetarian meal – Zaatar Roasted Cauliflower Brussel Sprouts, dreamily dressed with Maple Mustard Sauce. The grey skies and gloomy days needed a vibrant plate of food and it sure did cheer our mood.
This post is done in collaboration with Maille, which has a rich heritage starting from 1747 and honors tradition. They use highest quality ingredients to create complex zesty flavors to make your meal extraordinary. Maille believes that the right condiment can uplift your everyday meal in the most amazing ways without much effort. I am a huge fan of their mustard and use it quite often.
The Dressing for the Zaatar Cauliflower Brussel Sprouts
Roasted vegetables taste better with a little drizzle of sauce on them. This simple dressing with fresh orange juice, maple syrup and Maille Original Mustard comes together with a quick whisk. The zing from the mustard is a great touch and balances seamlessly with the spiced roasted cauliflower and brussel sprouts.
Can you make this without an oven?
YES! All you have to do is boil the cauliflower florets for a while before you start charring it on a stove top. Using a cast iron pan will give it a perfect brown crust that you get from roasting in the oven. Just keep the heat at medium low and let the vegetables sizzle and get cooked through.
The citrusy herbal zaatar spice with the sweet but zingy mustard dressing took the roasted veggie to a new level of deliciousness. Give it a try because I can assure it that you will love it!
It’s a great side dish paired with grilled meat and chicken! I could easily eat an entire plate of the salad for lunch or dinner but with some grilled meat it’s more filling. It’s crunchy, with lots of texture and the flavor is just delicious.
