Roasted Cauliflower

I use this exact method each time I roast my cauliflower, and just change up the spices for variation. You can also add other veggies to the baking sheet and roast them up at the same time.

Flavours I like adding include:

  • 1 tsp cumin powder, 1 tsp chili powder. Add lime juice and zest after finished baking
  • 2 tsp curry powder. Add fresh cilantro after finishing baking – served with some garlic yogurt
  • Halfway through cooking time, you can add freshly grated parmesan cheese, fresh parsley, chopped up capers, and a squeeze of lemon juice
