I love vegetables, but sometimes I get bored with them. I am always looking for new ways to create a delicious tasting veggie! It sure is easier to eat healthy when you enjoy the taste of what you are eating. I have made some mistakes in the kitchen before...I think the flavors all sound good together and then when I actually eat it, it's not yummy at all! Have you ever done that? I recently tried incorporating cilantro with broccoli. Okay, I guess now that I'm typing it, it doesn't really sound that great together. I love cilantro so much and wanted a new broccoli recipe. So, naturally, I decided to put them together. I added other spices and created a new broccoli recipe. Only, it was horrible. Oops! I went ahead and tossed that recipe in the trash. Now, let's get back to point, I have a wonderful cauliflower recipe to share! I decided to take a break from broccoli recipes. For my cauliflower recipe, you have to love garlic. I would say that 90% of the things I cook in my kitchen include garlic somehow. I definitely recommend buying fresh garlic too.Not only does it taste better than the garlic in a jar, it has no preservatives. Finally, after all that, here's my cauliflower recipe. It's a great side dish to any meal!
1 head of cauliflower, washed and chopped
2 fresh garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 tablespoons olive oil
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2. Combine all ingredients into a bowl and mix together to coat the cauliflower evenly.
3. Place the cauliflower onto a greased baking sheet. Spread it all out so they aren't overlapping.
4. Put in the over for 20-25 minutes until golden and tender.
5. Serve and enjoy!
