Marinated roasted cauliflower with parsley yogurt dip

Marinated roasted cauliflower with herby yogurt sauce

January 6st it’s holiday in Sweden, this means late wake-up and usually a big brunch in the city. Today was special because at 1 pm we were still in bed, laziness made it special. And while I was browsing my recipes feeds I remembered I love cauliflower. So I stopped on the first cauliflower recipe and “Voilà”! I tried a curry brown rice as side, but it wasn’t good enough to speak about it (I need to learn more about rice cooking).
