  • Adjust the oven rack to the middle position, and preheat oven to 425°F. In a small bowl, add smoked paprika, turmeric, garlic powder salt and black pepper. Mix everything very well.
  • Place the cauliflower florets on an aluminum foil lined baking sheet. Pour olive oil on top of the cauliflower florets and toss until everything is evenly coated. Sprinkle the spice mixture over the cauliflower, and mix well to combine.
  • Roast for about 25-30 minutes or until the cauliflower is tender and golden brown. Garnish with fresh parsley. Enjoy!

  • When buying the cauliflower, make sure the head is firm, tight, and does not have yellow patches.
  • You can buy pre-cut florets to save prep time. 
  • Make sure the florets are fully dry or they will not roast but steam instead.
  • To store: Leftover roasted cauliflower in an airtight container for up to 4 days once they’ve cooled to room temperature.
  • To reheat: Reheat leftover cauliflower in the oven, so they stay crispy.
