Cauliflower stopped being the veggie you avoided on the crudité platter a long time ago. It's now almost as essential as avocado, and people are still finding clever new ways to eat it (cauliflower rice was the just beginning, y'all).

Now that it's fall (officially!), your might be craving the nutty flavors of roasted autumn vegetables. Double down on seasonal ingredients by cooking cauliflower with pumpkin, and you'll be able to satisfy yourself twice over.

Keep scrolling for proof that cauliflower and pumpkin are the perfect pairing for fall.
