This is one of my favorite side dishes to a main course. It’s crispy, crunchy, tasty and low in calories(only 96 calories per serving!)! Plus, cauliflower is packed with vitamin C (strange, but true), fiber, potassium and folic acid. There have also been nutlike studies that have found cruciferous vegetables (such as cauliflower, broccoli, and brussel sprouts) may help prevent colon cancer as well as some other cancers. This recipe is super simple and can be used for various other types of veggies such as broccoli, carrots, potatoes, brussel sprouts and more!
Crunchy Baked Cauliflower
96 calories per serving
1 head of cauliflower
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
2. Chop the cauliflower into small bite sized pieces.
3. Put the cauliflower on a cookie sheet and pour the olive oil, salt and pepper on top. Mix together with your hands so that each piece of cauliflower has olive oil, salt and pepper on it (this should only take a few tosses with your hands).
4. Put the cookie sheet with the cauliflower on it into the oven. Bake for 25 minutes or until crispy.
