Celtic Sea salt to taste


Place the florets into a large sealable plastic bag.

Sprinkle in your oil.

Close the bag and shake.  Shake some more.

Open the bag and srinkle in your seasonings.

Close the bag and shake.  Shake some more.  Now give it a little shake.  You want to get as much of the seasonings on as many of the florets as possible.  If you would like to add more repeat the process.

Place the florets onto a foil lined cookie sheet and place into a 425° F pre-heated oven.  Roast for 15-25 minutes depending on the size of the florets and how crispy you like them.

Depending on what seasonings you used you may want to sprinkle the finished florets with some salt.

    I've had a very similar version of cauliflower, Diane. It's fabulous! Off to share. 🙂

      Shirley isn't it fun to make. I think we should all do a little dance when we shake. 🙂

    I just love cauliflower and away looking for new ways to prepare it. My favorite is curry flavored and roasted. But I love experimenting.

    Hope you're well.

      Amber I agree, curry and cauliflower are a good match. Doing great here in CA. Hope you are well too.

    The recipe is great but you can shake it in a container with a lid, or a bowl with a plate held over it. We all need to be aware of planet health as well as individual health. The two are linked, in any case. And plastic pollution is a problem of crisis level proportions. So we need to avoid all unnecessary uses of plastic, including things like this one. There really are easy alternatives. Check out The Plastic Pollution Coalition, No Plastic Project, My Plastic-Free Life, and many other sources for more information on this topic.
