Tasty Tuesday Plant Based Preparations: Roasted Cauliflower

Roasted cauliflower is quick, easy, and delicious hot or cold.  It can be seasoned to accompany a variety of dishes and tastes.  I served it alongside taco style black bean burgers with Mexican seasoning in the pictures below.  Aside from being anti-inflammatory, the sulforaphane in cauliflower has been shown to improve digestion and kill cancer stem cells.  Not too shabby for such an unassuming cruciferous veggie!

-Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

-Rinse and cut cauliflower into florets, then cut florets in half (this helps them brown).

-Toss cauliflower in large bowl with 2-3 tablespoons veggie broth and seasonings of choice.

-Lay the florets flat on a parchment paper covered cookie sheet.

-Bake 8-10 minutes in center of oven.  Rotate pan and bake 8-10 more minutes (this helps cauliflower cook more evenly).

-Remove and season as desired.
