I love the simplicity of this dish as well as its power-packed nutrient content! Cauliflower is of the cruciferous family that is well known for its anti-cancer properties. Particularly rich in cauliflower are immune boosting vitamins such as Vitamin C, Vitamin K, folate, Vitamin B6 and pantothenic acid. I add the vibrant yellow herb turmeric for its anti-inflammatory properties. I suggest using turmeric in cooking for my patients with inflammatory conditions such as autoimmune and gastrointestinal inflammatory conditions. I also recommend turmeric for its liver supportive and anti-cancer properties as well. The powerful combination of turmeric and cauliflower is definitely medicinal food.
Oven Temp: 400° F
1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
1 ½ tablespoons ground turmeric
2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
- In a small mixing bowl, combine turmeric, olive oil and garlic and mix until evenly combined.
- In a large mixing bowl toss the turmeric and olive oil mixture with the cauliflower until evenly combined and pour onto a cookie sheet and bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes or until cauliflower is lightly browned.

I used this recipe idea for using up some cauliflower rice that I had in the freezer for long enough. Everyone in my family enjoyed the side dish. It was a nice change and a healthy choice. Thanks for posting this.
