Claire Wright from addsomeveg.com shares 3 simple ways to prepare cauliflower that the whole family will enjoy.
I always thought I would never enjoy cauliflower unless it was smothered in a cheese sauce. I just wasn’t that fussed about it, and the flavour bugged me. This is the way of preparing cauliflower that finally tipped me over the fence into a cauli-lover. Roasting cauliflower brings out its natural sweetness and makes it a winner with kids and adults alike.
Preheat the oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Place cauliflower florets on a baking tray and toss with a few tablespoons of olive oil. Season with salt & pepper and sprinkle over a pinch of (smoked or regular) paprika, ground cumin, ground coriander or some dried mixed herbs. Roast for 25-30 mins, until everything is soft and just catching on the edges. Serve hot as a side, or cold with a dip as a snack.
