G&P Market: April 2016 Update
Posted on 04/06/2016
cauliflowerWe had our biggest and fastest G&P Market of the year in March! More and more families and staff are taking part in this wonderful community event. How can you say no to getting free fresh fruits and vegetables, and important staples that everyone needs like pasta, rice, beans, even mac-n-cheese?! If you haven’t seen it yet, you have to stop by. Everyone from the G&P community is welcome. The amazing organization that sponsors the market, Food for Free, was featured in this great Boston Globe story. Check it out!  

We hope you will try our recipes and let us know how they turn out. Send us pictures of your G&P Market food creations! The G&P market is also a great time to meet G&P staff, volunteers and fellow parents. Big thanks as always to the Mayor’s Office, Food for Free and all of the staff and parent volunteers who help out. If you would like to volunteer, please contact Lauren at lmorse@cpsd.us or 617.349.6577 x115.

The next market will be Thursday, April 14th, 2016 from 2:30-4:30PM. See you then!


Roasted Cauliflower

This is an EASY & HEALTHY way to add a hearty vegetable to any meal.

Time: 30 minutes.
Yield: 4 servings.

INGREDIENTS

–1 pound cauliflower, about 1 medium-large head, trimmed and cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices

–Extra virgin olive oil, to coat

–Sea salt

–Coarsely ground black pepper

PREPARATION
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place cauliflower in a large mixing bowl. Pour on enough olive oil to coat (a few tablespoons). Season generously with salt and pepper and toss gently until evenly coated. 

2. Lay cauliflower pieces out on a baking sheet. Drizzle any remaining oil from the bowl on top. Bake, turning once, until caramelized on edges and tender, 25 to 30 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature, as a side dish. You can also sprinkle it with a very good aged vinegar. Or, cut florets into smaller pieces and add to salads.
