This is what you need to prepare the dish:
– one tablespoon olive or coconut oil. Coconut oil is believed to be better because it isn’t prone to oxidation like olive oil when being heated, thus it stays good for use.
– one tablespoon turmeric
– pinch of cumin
– one head of organic cauliflower
– salt and pepper
You can also have different variations of the recipe, i.e. adding baked pine nuts, chopped cilantro and chopped mint at your own taste for sprinkling at the end, or adding a little more turmeric if you are a fan of spices.
Here is how to prepare the dish:
Before you start, you need to pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and chop the cauliflower into little florets.
After you have cut the cauliflower, put it in a bowl for baking mixed together with the turmeric, olive (coconut) oil, cumin and the salt. Now that you have everything together, just use foil to cover while in the oven.
This is done in order to keep the cauliflower florets fresh and to prevent drying. Roasting time should be around 35 – 40 minutes.
Now is the time to remove the foil and put it in the oven for another 15 minutes.
After it is done, put it out to serve and enjoy this delicious and healthy meal!
