Vegetables are often thought of as boring, bland, or tasteless. This is far from the truth!

Veggies can offer a great source of variety. Cauliflower is especially versatile, and this is just another example of how it can be used. Consider yourself warned: They are addictive!

Ingredients

  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 1/8 cup of olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp granulated garlic
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 cup of nutritional yeast  (not to be confused with brewer’s yeast – this is a highly nutritious condiment)
  • Optional (To add spice):  1/4 tsp black pepper, 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper, or a sprinkle of cayenne pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Wash and clean the cauliflower. Cut off and discard the stems.
  3. Cut the cauliflower florets into small pieces.
  4. In a large bowl, combine the olive oil, garlic, salt and nutritional yeast.
  5. Add the cauliflower pieces and thoroughly coat each piece.
  6. Place cauliflower pieces onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  7. Bake for one hour turning a few times during cooking. You will want them to look browned.

Enjoy!
