Roasted Cauliflower

Roasted Cauliflower

This is a delicious, low fat/low carb way to make boring ol' cauliflower.  You may have seen "Cauliflower Popcorn" recipes in magazines such as Weight Watchers and the like.  I've made the "popcorn" before, but we prefer a bigger cauliflower floret, so that it's not as crunchy and dry.  The result is a moist side dish with a wonderful roasted flavor.

  • One head of cauliflower
  • 3 Tbs olive oil
  • chili powder to taste
  • garlic powder to taste
  • Italian seasoning to taste
  • pinch or two of sea salt
  • Preheat oven to 450F
  • Cut away the long stalk and break cauliflower into medium sized florets
  • To wash, place florets into sink or big bowl of water + 15 drops of Grapefruit Seed Extract. If you don't have GSE, a bit of vinegar will do the trick.
  • Place cauliflower in a bowl
  • Add the olive oil, chili powder, garlic powder, Italian seasoning and sea salt*
  • Toss with fingers to coat
  • Place on baking pan in oven
  • Bake for about 15 minutes, turn florets over, then bake 15 more minutes
*I never measure my seasonings. I just add what looks to be right and taste. If it needs more, then I add more.  If it needs less, well, I'm kinda screwed. ;)

You're not screwed, just keep adding more cauliflower :-)
