If you’re observing Meatless Monday, Lent or just looking to add more veggies to your diet, you’ll need a go-to recipe that’s easy yet satisfying. This week, I stop by to visit my friends at CBS Austin and share this filling recipe for Chipotle Whole Roasted Cauliflower with Caper Vinaigrette. I also share my picks for fruit-forward wines that pair perfectly with the spicy flavor from this recipe! Catch the full segment here.

Tanji’s Wine Finds:
First, let’s start with bubbles! One of my favorites is the Mumm Napa Brut Prestige; a sparkling pairs with anything, so you can’t go wrong with this pick. $15
German wines, in general, tend to pair well with spicy food because they are fruit-forward — even the dry wines. The Thomas Schmitt Riesling has just enough fruit to counter any spice, plus, it pairs great with Thai food! $13
If you really like spice, you’re going to love this combo. In the Pepperjack Porterhouse Graded Shiraz, you’ll taste a bit of tannin which provides an interesting chemistry with the chipotle in the recipe. $30
