Taco Roasted Cauliflower

paleo Taco Spiced Cauliflower
Roasting cauliflower (or broccoli) to serve with dinner is one of my go-to quick side dishes. The classic way is to roast with simply olive oil, minced garlic and sea salt Garlic Roasted Broccoli and Cauliflower Recipe. It only takes a few moments of prep work and then roasts in the oven for 20 or so minutes while you pull dinner together. The florets come out crispy and savory, which is a nice change from soft and soggy that we often encounter.

Now, if you know me very well, then it’s no surprise that I simply couldn’t leave well enough alone. Yes, the classic version of this recipe is bomb. Yes, the kids eat it without any nagging. But…I couldn’t help myself from playing around with new flavors to create this Taco Roasted Cauliflower recipe 🙂

Once you taste it you’ll understand why! Fire this quick side recipe up and have it roast while you finish up dinner. Leftovers make a fantastic lunch the next day. Enjoy!
