Spice Dusted Roasted Cauliflower

Ingredients:
1 large head cauliflower, cut into florets
1 1/2 tablespoons cumin
1 tablespoon hot paprika
2 tablespoon olive oil

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400. In a large pan, place cauliflower. Dust with spices and toss with oil. Rearrange florets so they are in a single layer. Roast for 15 minutes or until dark brown and caramelized around the edges. Sprinkle with salt and serve.


My thoughts:
A really easy and slightly spicy way to prepare cauliflower. The cauliflower tastes almost sweet near the caramelized parts and the spices make a nice contrast. Plus it's much healthier than drowning it in cheese sauce like so many recipes recommend.
