An easy, quick, and delicious Spicy Roasted Cauliflower recipe for you to try today! It’s also gluten-free, low-carb, and paleo-friendly. Enjoy!
After the huge success of my Garlic Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower recipe, I decided to create another one because I know you all love cauliflower as much as I do! 😉 This time, I added lots of spices that make this Spicy Roasted Cauliflower recipe so delicious.
This recipe is absolutely tasty and very easy to make. You only need to cut the cauliflower into florets, pour olive oil over them, and then add all the spices. Talking about spices, I think the best part of this Spicy Roasted Cauliflower Recipe is that you can use any spice you like. The sky is the limit, and I guarantee they’ll be very good. I love hot spices, so I added cayenne pepper and smoked paprika. But if they are too strong for you, replace them with chili powder and sweet paprika. Either way, this healthy side dish will be the star of your table.
I think cauliflower is always the best side dish because it basically goes with any protein, such as salmon, chicken, beef, pork, and even eggs. I love to serve it with salmon and a salad. Hm… So good!! Also, this Spicy Roasted Cauliflower Recipe is a great option to serve for holiday parties because it’s hard to find someone who doesn’t like cauliflower, right?
You can prepare it ahead of time by cutting the cauliflower into florets and adding all the spices. Then when it’s about 30 minutes before dinnertime, place the cauliflower in the oven, and bake it for about 25 minutes. Of course, the cooking time depends on the power of your oven. This is also a great side dish if you are on a low-carb, vegan/vegetarian, paleo, or gluten-free diet. I really hope you give this recipe a try and enjoy it!
