Roasted Turmeric Cauliflower


Prep Time

5 minutes

Prep Notes

While the recipe uses olive oil, I recommend coconut oil instead. Olive oil is susceptible to oxidation when heated and should only be used cold, whereas coconut oil is stable enough to resist heat-induced damage.

Cooking Time

55 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 head of organic cauliflower
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil [or coconut oil]
  • 1 tablespoon turmeric
  • Pinch of cumin
  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
    2. Chop cauliflower head into florets.
    3. Place cauliflower into a baking dish. Add olive oil, turmeric, cumin, and salt then mix together.
    4. Cover baking dish with foil to keep florets from drying out and roast for about 35-40 minutes.
    5. Then, remove foil and cook for another 15 minutes.

    Notes

    This recipe is delicious served warm during the fall and winter, but come spring and summer, it also works well chilled as a summer salad. You can try this Mediterranean Dressing if using as a summer salad:
