In almost every family, some nights can most definitely be crazier then others. At times, whatever is in the fridge will have to do.

This is one of these hodge podge dinners that turned out a lot better than I thought. Oven roasted veggies mixed with spicy chorizo, served on top of Gruyère sprinkled flat bread. Serve it along with a big green salad and voilà, a dinner in no time.

This roasted cauliflower, leek and chorizo served on Gruyère flat bread would also make an excellent appetizer or midnight snack for your next party.


*  1 pound (450 g) chorizo
*  1 head cauliflower, cut into smaller rossets
*  2 leeks, diced
*  olive oil
*  salt and pepper

*  2 pizza size flat breads
*  1 cup (250 ml) Gruyere cheese, shredded


Preheat the oven to 425 F.

Mix the vegetables with some olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place on a baking sheet and roast for about 20 minutes or until the vegetables are turning slightly brown.

In the meantime fry the chorizo in a pan. When completely cooked through, mix in the roasted vegetables. Keep warm.

Sprinkle the bread with some olive oil. Distribute the cheese evenly on top and bake in the oven for about 10 minutes. Serve with chorizo mixture on the side or pizza style, on top.

How can cauliflower look so delicious. I can just taste that spicy chorizo. Great looking supper, wish I lived closer!!

Wasn't a big fan of chorizo, but tried Boulder Sausage's and now I might be going overboard with it.

"Overboard with it"? Is that the right phrase? If one is going overboard with something, he's doing it too much, right? But if you're thrown overboard of a boat, you're not doing too much of just about anything, now, are you?

Mmmh…so glad to see someone else post about quick and easy meals without a recipe. Because that is how life is and you are giving us a good idea at the same time.
