Cauliflower seems to be all the rage right now. Mashed cauliflower, roasted cauliflower, cauliflower pizza crusts and so much more. The food manufacturers have even gotten on board and you can find cauliflower not only in the fresh produce department but I’ve also spotted it in the freezer section so it’s easy to find ingredients for this spicy roasted cauliflower recipe.
This is a perfect side dish for a quick and easy weeknight meal. Just toss it all together and pop it in the oven for a flavorful, low-carb side that pairs well with everything from poultry to beef and pork roasts. When I serve this with a beef roast I like to pair it with Locations Oregon wine, one of my favorite pinot noirs.
Have to say one of the best things about this recipe is its quick to prepare, only 5 minutes before you pop it in the oven.
