As a follow up to last week's post on spices, here is a great recipe that incorporates using turmeric and garlic, both powerhouses in the world of spices!
1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
4 TBSP olive oil
2-3 cloves fresh garlic, chopped or minced
1 ½ teaspoon turmeric
1 jalapeño, finely diced
1/3 tsp black pepper
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Whisk together the olive oil, jalapeño, garlic, black pepper and turmeric in a small bowl. Pour into a gallon-sized resealable zipper storage bag. Next, add to the bag the chopped cauliflower to the bag. Shake gently, ensuring that the florets are well-coated.
Place coated cauliflower in a medium baking dish, single layer. Roast until lightly golden brown and just tender, 25 to 30 minutes. Check halfway through cooking and turn or flip florets if necessary. Serve warm, as a side dish or add your favorite protein to make it a main dish.
This recipe works well for preparing cauliflower steaks. Remember, Folks, food determines how we feel and heal!
