What does roast Golden Spice Roasted Cauliflower taste like, you ask?
Heavenly. And also – earthy-spicy from the turmeric, a tad smokey from the paprika, gorgeously curry-flavoured from the cumin, nutty from the sesame oil, which all adds up to = YUM!
If ever you try a recipe that you’re not quiiite sure about, let it be this one! I’m 100% certain that you will love it and agree with me that this is the Very Very Best (i.e the YUMMIEST) way to eat cauliflower.
Not to mention how incredibly healthy Golden Spice Roasted Cauliflower is…
- With boat loads of vitamins (especially Vitamin C and Vitamin A) and minerals, low in calories and high in anti-inflammatories, cauliflower is a front-runner in the goodness department!
- Cauliflower also improves digestion, and aids in eye health
- Turmeric contains anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds
- Paprika is packed with vitamins, iron, and beta-carotene which are all great for glowing, healthy skin – it is said that paprika has anti-ageing benefits! (Yes please).
- Cumin is full of vitamins, minerals, and is a good source of energy, fibre and amino acids
When a side dish is packed with THAT much goodness, TASTES A M A Z I N G, is on the table in 25 minutes with only 5 of those minutes needing your attention – it’s a must on the weekly menu! And if you’re giving dairy free or vegan eating a try, this recipe is perfect for you.
To make Golden Spice Roasted Cauliflower, all you do is break or slice a large cauliflower head into florets, throw them onto a baking tray, drizzle with olive oil and sesame oil. Then scatter on the spices, salt and pepper and toss everything together until evenly coated. Roast for 20 minutes or until tender, but not too soft.
Another idea is a Whole Smoked Cauliflower which you should definitely try after you try my Golden Spice Roasted Cauliflower recipe!
Just right, golden, gorgeous and oh so TASTY.
You can serve roasted cauliflower as a side dish with just about anything, it’s very versatile! I have had it as a main meal on many occasions with avocado and a green salad, and my tummy was very satisfied and happy.
