cauliflower roasted with garlic, ginger & turmeric

You can’t really give yourself a bigger boost in the health department than grabbing a head or 2 of cauliflower before you head to the checkout each week at the grocery store – it’s like having Bruce Wayne, Clark Kent & Peter Parker for dinner a couple of times a week – literally, talk about super dinner guests! And like those super guests, that’s exactly what cauliflower is doing for your health – warding off all things nasty, has your back when nothing else seems to, and like those dinner guests, have been known to wear a dunce cap or 2 from time to time. If industry advertisers got smart – instead of outfitting a head of cauliflower in plastic wrap like its Lady Gaga, they’d sure make their point on the health front, and move a heckuva lot more heads of cauliflower if the big white heads were sporting tight little muscle shirts with a big ‘ole “S” on the front – well, you gotta start somewhere!

And with the many, many, many ways to prepare cauliflower, there are just no more excuses for bypassing this superfood which is in desperate need of a makeover – let’s put it this way, if cauliflower was a room in your house – ’nuff said! So on that note, meet Indian-inspired roasted cauliflower – eat as is, add it to salads, put over pizza, stir it up with pasta, purée with a couple of cups of stock for soup, or a little less for a dip – and that’s just off the top of my head. Just think where we could go if we actually thought about it. Now, let’s roast some cauliflower.

    This was great! I started making it and realized I had no onions, so I just went ahead with the cauliflower and garlic and it was still awesome. Can’t wait to try it with the onions next time. I will definitely be making this again. So easy.
