I wanted a vegetable dish to go with my Moroccan lamb. None of the recipes I found on-line were quite what I had in mind. I started taking ingredients from several of them and built my own.

Since wife Jan is limiting her carb intake I knew that she would want something in addition to a pasta dish. I had bought a tomato, thinking I would add it to my pesto dish, but I changed my mind. I had bought some small Brussels sprouts, one of Jan’s favorite vegetables, at the farmer’s market on Saturday. However, I had only bought a half a pound, not quite enough for a full side dish. Putting these two things together and roasting them seemed like a good idea.
I am making a pot roast this week, but my son-in-law is still on his Ketogenic diet and my wife Jan is also watching her starch intake. These restrictions means that I cannot add potatoes to the roast as would be the normal accompaniment to the savory meat. Man does not live on meat alone, but I know a few who have tried.
My son-in-law was waxing eloquently about Gobhi Musallam. Chris described the dish as a whole roasted cauliflower, an impressive Indian presentation dish, which fits his Ketogenic diet. The recipe is also in-line with the soft food diet that Myr has been put on by her doctor. However, we just had Indian food last week. While I like the idea of a whole roasted cauliflower, there is nothing that says it has to be Indian. What other cuisine could I adapt this technique to?
