Spiced Roasted Cauliflower
This easy roasted cauliflower recipe comes together in under 30 minutes, and brings a punch of good-for-you spices and a whole lot of flavor! You’ll have essentially no mess, and a delicious Moroccan-spiced side dish to pair with any chicken, fish, or meat!
Spiced Moroccan Cauliflower
Cauliflower is just the best! One cup of cauliflower has almost 60% of your daily-intake of vitamin C! It is also a great source of vitamin K. And, it’s also really delicous. This side dish is a bit unique, pairing roasted broccoli with diced tomatoes with some Moroccan-inspired spices. We love the health benefits of turmeric, and the flavor that this spice blend brings is just perfect with the addition of cooked tomato, garlic, and onion.
It’s perfect to pair with a nice lean protein, like chicken or fish!
- Extra-virgin olive oil
- Crushed tomatoes or diced tomatoes
- Garlic cloves
- Ground cumin
- Fine sea salt
- Black pepper
- Red pepper flakes, optional
- Fresh parsley leaves, for garnish
I love that this dish requires just a sheet pan (and a bowl to toss everything together)!
