Spicy Cauliflower

I adore roasted cauliflower. It’s delicious to eat, simple, to make, and there are so many ways to change it up. Here I’ve got some of my favorite spices like Aleppo pepper and sumac to take it to the next level.

One of the things I love about roasted cauliflower is that it’s delicious, but it also holds beautifully as a leftover, and it’s spectacular at room temperature. I always like to do an extra batch because blended with chicken stock, it makes a truly easy and fantastic soup. There are so many wonderful ways to enjoy cauliflower, whether it’s cauliflower steak, cauliflower rice, or roasted cauliflower.

This dish is an easy and delicious winter side dish. Plus, it would pair wonderfully with my Smoky Red Pepper Sauce!

1 1/2 Teaspoon Garlic powder
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 head cauliflower
3 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil


Instructions

Preheat oven to 400 F. Line a sheet try with parchment paper, if you prefer.

Make a spice blend by combining the Aleppo pepper, Sumac, smoky paprika, garlic powder, and salt, stirring to combine thoroughly.

Break up the cauliflower into florets. Toss with olive oil to cover thoroughly. Then cover evenly with the spice to coat.

  1. I used a full head of cauliflower but, following the recipe, it was WAY too salty. I might try this again, but probably use only 1/2 tsp of salt.

    1. Thank you so much… I’m gonna look at the salt and modify it. I appreciate it

    2. Just out of curiosity did you do one and a half teaspoons? That’s what it calls for. Which seems right for an entire head of cauliflower

  2. I really enjoyed this easy to make side. I’ve made it twice now and both times it was a hit. The spice blend is really great and made use of a spice that I’m still learning to incorporate (sumac). I made no modifications and thought it turned out really well. Both times the entire sheet pan of cauliflower was devoured. I’m not a natural with adding salt (or really any herbs/spices) as my mom did not use it a ton growing up and therefor I haven’t either. I felt the amount of salt and spices were appropriate for the amount of cauliflower and produced a it fantastic result. I will make this over and over.

    1. Thank you so much… It’s definitely the way that I feel about it. I love my recent friday favorites which is all about vegetable sides and especially things that were celebrating here in the winter. Thanks so much
