Crispy Turmeric Baked Cauliflower is the perfect appetizer, or fun veggie side dish. With flavors of garlic and cheese, finished with a soft crunch, you’ll never want to prepare cauliflower any other way!
Hi guys! Popping in for a fun, easy recipe today. It’s a bit of a weird week because I’m here in Charlotte as an in-between. We got back from Charleston yesterday, and I’m leaving Friday morning to fly up to Rhode Island for my baby shower! But, not before I share this Crispy Turmeric Baked Cauliflower. This recipe is the perfect appetizer or side dish for any entrée!
I first made these a few weeks ago. One of my Hello Fresh sides was a panko-crusted roasted cauliflower. As soon as I tasted them, I knew I could spice up the recipe a little bit to take after my Roasted Garlic Turmeric Parsnip Fries. I’m still looking for more ways to incorporate turmeric into my routine, since I bought it in bulk. It has so many health properties. I’ll usually sprinkle some into my Vega One shakes and smoothies, or add some when I’m sautéing veggies.
This is another great way to include turmeric! Beware: the turmeric will give your veggies (and maybe your hands) a pretty little yellow stain, but it’s totally worth it! What I love most is the layer of crispness on the edges. Crisp cauliflower, brussel sprouts and broccoli speak to me. Don’t serve me watery or spongy veggies – make them crispy!
These Crispy Turmeric Baked Cauliflower Florets are perfect for your football appetizers. And thinking about the Superbowl this weekend – you should make these! I bet you could get your friends and family to fall in love with cauliflower after this recipe. Maybe they already liked it before, but this recipe might get them more excited!
Do ya’ll have plans yet? It actually works out that I’ll be able to watch the Superbowl in Rhode Island with my family in a house full of other Pats fans.
