Roasted Artichoke Hearts and Cauliflower

I am one of those strange people that has decided I like vegetables. I know, I am odd. But I dont just like the standard green beans, corn and peas, which are all quite yummy by the way, but I have branched off into the kale, artichoke hearts and cauliflower. So now that I like it all. It's this experiment to see what I can combine together. Most of the time my family just shakes their head and takes a scoop and I scoop the rest on my plate. Happier to have half a plate of veggies and a little protein. I know, I am strange. The only time this vegetable rule does not apply is if potatoes are anywhere in the vicinity. All bets are off then.

I am addicted to Trader Joes frozen artichoke hearts. If there is a meeting for them, I'm not going. I don't want to be freed of this addiction. I can throw them on a pan with a little olive oil spray and some seasoning and  into the oven and have pretty much a meal for me. Add some pasta and maybe The Fireman is happier. The Ballplayer won't touch them so if his dad is working I just scored!! Tonight I am roasting them with Cauliflower. The combination is amazing and even The Fireman agrees. Cauliflower when roasted tastes sorta like roasted potatoes.

Spray your cookie sheet with cooking spray and line the cookie sheet with the frozen artichoke hearts and sliced cauliflower. I had too much so I had to use two trays.
 season with Creole seasoning. I like to use the salt free variety and add my own salt
 Roast at 400 degrees and flip when the one side is golden brown. I like it really brown.
