Roasted Cauliflower with Turmeric and Ginger

We have a bunch of ways we want to try cauliflower these days...its the new potato! You can mash it, rice it, fry it, roast it and boil it, if you want to, that is. I have even made cauliflower appetizer balls with a recipe from Guy Fieri that are fabulous!

But if you are looking for a side dish that is simple and delicious, try this Roasted Cauliflower recipe from SLO Veg. It calls for olive oil, turmeric, ginger and salt and pepper...that's it! Coat the cauliflower and pop it into a hot oven for 20-30 minutes until you get a little roasted brown coloring on it. Turmeric gives it a little zip and color, too. Then chow down!

Oven Roasted Cauliflower with Turmeric and Ginger 

Servings: 4  Level: Easy  Cook Time: 20 Minutes
3 tablespoons vegetable oil 
1 tablespoon black mustard seeds 
1 jalapeno, finely diced 
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger 
1 teaspoon turmeric 
1 head cauliflower, cut into florets 
Salt and pepper to taste
Directions: Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Whisk together the oil, mustard seeds, jalapeno, ginger, and turmeric in a small bowl. Place cauliflower in a medium baking dish and toss with the flavored oil and season with salt. Roast until lightly golden brown and just tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Serve hot.

*Note: When I made this, I didn't have a jalapeno or mustard seeds, so I used some sesame seeds and no pepper. Still great!
