[This week, Stacie, our Los Angeles correspondent, brings us a simple way to roast cauliflower.]
When I need a quick and delicious side dish or a main event for vegetarian friends, one of my favorite ways to prepare this flavorful and pretty veggie is to roast it with an Indian inspiration. Enjoy with saffron rice and lentils or, for carnivores, it makes a great accompaniment for steak.
Indian Roasted Cauliflower
Serves 4 as a side dish
One head of cauliflower
Red Chili Peppers
Preheat oven to 350°F
Cut up one head of cauliflower in to fork friendly pieces
Place cauliflower on foil covered baking sheet and generously pour olive oil over cauliflower.
Spinkle with salt and chili peppers. Place in the oven and roast for about 15 minutes. Using tongs, turn over the pieces of cauliflower to prevent burning and recoat them with oil.
Roast another 25 minutes, until tender and slighly carmel colored.
