Oven roasted cauliflower

DSCF2277 1

You may have noticed that most of the posts on here are foods that are seriously decadent – cookies, brownies, popcorn smothered in life-changingly good caramel sauce. But there comes a time in every girl’s life when she needs a little detox, and only fruit and veggies will do.

Whilst plain old fruit and veggies are delicious enough in their own right, I’m always looking for ways to spice them up a bit and make them more exciting. This oven roasted cauliflower is just the ticket – it’s tasty, spicy, crunchy, and you can eat the whole bowlful for around 150 calories.

Ingredients
300g cauliflower, cut into medium size florets
1 tbsp olive oil
2-3 cloves garlic
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp crushed chilli flakes
1 tsp salt
1/2 a lemon (optional)

Method
Preheat your oven to 200 degrees.
Spread your cauliflower across a reasonably sized baking tray.
Drizzle over the olive oil, and sprinkle the spices, salt, and finely minced garlic across the florets.
Use your hands/a serving spoon to make sure each floret is evenly coated.
Pop into the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes until your cauliflower is crispy and golden around the edges.
Squeeze the lemon across the florets (if you so wish!) and serve.
