Spicy Roasted Cauliflower…..

I saw this recipe on Facebook recently and decided to give it a try. Of course when I went to through the list of the ingredients needed I found that I was missing a few, so I substituted them for what I thought were similar alternatives.

Listed below are the original ingredients with my replacements in parenthesis:

  • 1 cauliflower head
  • 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil

Preheat oven to 400 Deg F and great a small baking pan  with the vegetable oil

  • 1 1/2 cups of Plain Greek Yogurt ( used sour cream instead)
  • 1 lime zested and juiced
  • 2 tablespoons of chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon of cumin (used 1 tablespoon of turmeric instead)
  • 1 tablespoon of garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of black pepper

Mix the above ingredients, trim the base of the cauliflower to remove green leaves and the woody stem.

Dunk the cauliflower in the bowl and use a brush to cover it evenly with the marinade. You want a nice thick coating on it!

Place cauliflower on in the baking pan and roast until surface is nicely dry and lightly brown (about 40 minutes). The Marinade will make a crust on the surface.

Remove from oven and let it rest for 10 minutes before slicing it. If you would like the cauliflower to be a bit more tender I suggest you roast it for an extra 15/20 minutes as the above one still had a slight crunch to it.

Enjoy 🙂
