Roasted Cauliflower with Rice, Beans and Mustard Vinaigrette

And the vegetarian cooking continues!!  my mom actually made this recipe and it was delicious.  It is a nice meal salad. The recipe is based on a recipe from a vegetarian cookbook J and I got from the library - At Home-Vegetarian Cookbook, from the culinary institute of America. Apparently it was easy to make and didn't take look.

Doesn't it look nice and colorful with the purple cauliflower?

Roasted cauliflower:
- 3 cups cauliflower florets
- 2 tbsp olive oil
salt and freshly ground pepper as needed

Mustard Vinaigrette:
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 3 tbsps white wine vinegar
- 1 tbsp dijon mustard
salt and ground pepper

we had some mustard dressing already made up, so just used that.

Rice and Beans:
 1 1/2 cups cooked navy beans
3 cups cooked brown rice
1 medium tomato
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
2 stalks celery
1 bunch green onion, minced
- 2 tbsp parsley

-Preheat oven to 425
- Toss cauliflower with oil to coat, season with salt and pepper and toss more.  spread on a baking sheet and roast 10-15 min
- mix ingredients for vinaigrette
- in a bowl combine rice, beans, tomatoes, red peppers, celery, green onion and parsley. Add cauliflower, and dressing.
