Seasoned Baked Cauliflower

How are we all doing with our healthy eating so far?  This quick and easy little recipe for THE MOST DELICIOUS CAULIFLOWER I’ve ever made is hopefully going to help add to your repertoire of veggie recipes.

I love this seasoned baked cauliflower recipe… can you tell (see bold print above). lol

Cauliflower has a very neutral flavour and my most favourite way to prepare it when I’ve steamed it is to add a little olive oil, sea salt and Frank’s Red Hot sauce to it.  I find this is a pretty simple way to kick up my interest level a bit.

However… I think I’ve found a new way to enjoy this healthy veggie.  Seasoned with dried spices.

In my discussions I often find that people shy away from using spices and herbs.  Sometimes they find they don’t add enough flavour… or they are unsure about how much to add, or what spices work well together.

Here’s a great little tip that I learned a long time ago… It’s better to use more dried herbs and spices that a little.  This is how we can create a really great punch of flavour.  This recipe is a wonderful example of this.

This recipe was so easy in it’s method of preparation, too… virtually no clean up… just my knife, chopping board and a cookie sheet! 🙂

SEASONED CAULIFLOWER

1 head of cauliflower, washed & chopped

1 tbsp olive oil

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp paprika

1 tsp chili powder (optional for those who don’t like heat)

1-1/2 tsp garlic powder (depending on preference)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 450 F. Place chopped cauliflower on cookie sheet.  Drizzle olive oil over cauliflower.  Next, sprinkle evenly over the cauliflower the salt and spices.

Next… get your hands in there!!  Mix the cauliflower around on the cookie sheet with your hands to ensure they are well coated with the olive oil, salt and spices.

Bake for 10 minutes.  Stir.   Bake another 10 minutes.  Your done.
Simple… easy… full of favour.  Keep up the great work everyone!  Health & happiness.  xo
