Roasted Curried Cauliflower, Sweet Potato, & Kimchee

DSCN4658-LR4 Kimchee???  Another overly priced exotic ingredient only available in a specialty food store?  Well actually, this one is very affordable and stocked at Meijers in the vegetable section with the tofu and bean sprouts.  It is a mixture of cabbage, red pepper, garlic, onion, and ginger and oh so very tasty.  You could add kimchee to a bowl of grass and make it edible and delicious.  It’s just that good.  This is another simple way to add convenience and seasoning to your meals without spending hours in the kitchen.  I use it all the time.  I even piled some on Michael’s lunch sandwich today and he was a happy hubby!   You may want to PIN this recipe for the upcoming holidays as it serves well as a side dish.  I served it for dinner with a scoop of sloppy joe lentils on Sunday night and we were very satisfied (a NO carb dinner).  Possible modifications: Try greek yogurt as an alternative to mayonnaise,  pumpkin seeds for walnuts, or double up on the sweet potato if that is your thing.  Get roasting friends!
