Roasting vegetables seems to be my favorite way to prepare them… and small wonder. Low maintenance, quick, crispy, and perfectly caramelized. This is a recipe my mom came up with, and now I just can’t eat cauliflower any other way. Well, that and the fact that paprika is one of the very precious few seasonings I can still eat (woot!). I swear I heard angels singing when I found out I could have paprika, basil, oregano and vanilla beans. I would probably just evaporate if I could no longer use vanilla!
Ok, here is the recipe. You’ll find that the smokey paprika adds a wonderful dimension to the slightly cripsly but stil crunchy cauliflower. Its just delicious.
Paprika Roasted Cauliflower
- 1 -2 tsp smoked paprika
- 1-2 tbsp olive oil
- 1-2 heads cauliflower, cut into bite sized pieces
- Toss the cauliflower, olive oil and paprika together on a cookie sheet.
- Sprinkle salt over top.
- Roast at 350 for 15-20 min or ntil cooked the way you like it.
- (tip- let the pan heat up before putting in cauliflower and it will make the bottoms crispier)
