Roasted Cauliflower recipe your whole family will love! How to roast cauliflower and season it so that it’s full of flavor and delicious as a side dish or even as your main meal. 

We’ve been really trying to focus on clean eating lately, even though it’s really hard when you’re traveling and the quickest, easiest thing to do is grab something from the fast food drive-thru. Clean eating isn’t hard it just takes a little more time. Planning ahead and prepping are key to keeping yourself on track so I try to create a solid meal plan each week and aim to stick to atleast 80 percent of it.

I made this Roasted Cauliflower dish recently and it was so tasty! I really like cauliflower but trying to get my husband and the kids to go for it is a whole different story. It’s really got to have a lot of flavor for them to make it past the first forced bite.

This recipe has a little spicy kick to it from the chile powder. If you want something a little more tame you could skip the chile powder and add sprinkle fresh parmesan over the cauliflower after it’s roasted. Just wait till the last five or ten minutes to add cheese if you do so it doesn’t burn.
