Roasted Cauliflower with Cumin and Cilantro


  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 3 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • coarse sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 lemon, juiced


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C).
  2. Mix cauliflower with olive oil, cumin, sea salt, and freshly ground pepper together in a large bowl; spread into a roasting pan.
  3. Roast in preheated oven for 35 minutes. Stir cilantro and lemon juice with the cauliflower and continue roasting until tender, 5 to 10 minutes more.
Mealthy tip:

The combination of cumin and lemon is thought to aid digestion. Just another reason to sprinkle extra on your veggies and your plate! Try squeezing lime juice instead of the lemon juice. Or use fresh parsley instead of cilantro. Serve this dish alongside your favorite protein, like sautéed tofu or pork, and open a bottle of crisp white wine to wash it down.

This recipe is so easy to put together -- just stir together, spread out into a pan, and roast! The flavor from the cumin, lemon, and cilantro really come together nicely with the cauliflower. Will make again!
