Spicy Roasted Cauliflower

I know, I know. Your friend the Jolly Green Giant makes those veggie steamer packs that are soooo much easier than actually making a legit vegetable side dish. But I promise this is so easy, and very tasty, so it definitely makes a few minutes of extra work worthwhile. I’m not even going to make you read my musings—let’s get right to the recipe.

Head of Cauliflower cut into florets
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
1/2 Tsp Cayenne Pepper
1 Tsp Garlic Powder
Salt & Pepper

Mix the olive oil and spices in a bowl big enough for your cauliflower. Don’t be afraid to use a slightly larger bowl—I didn’t and it was hard to keep the cauliflower from escaping into the waiting mouths of my dogs.

Toss your cauliflower in the oil and spices and then pour it onto a baking sheet. In a 475 degree oven, roast the cauliflower for about 10 minutes. Stir and roast for about another 10 (you might want to check on it). When it’s a nice golden color, it’s done and ready to serve! The Green Giant might not like it, but you definitely will.
