Here is a recipe for cajun cauliflower, from Eastern Michigan University dietetic intern, Kristina (it is really good – my son, who detests cauliflower, actually not only tried it but liked it).
1- Wash a head of cauliflower and pat dry.
2- Preheat oven to 350°F.
3- While the oven is preheating cut the stems and leaves off of the cauliflower and cut into bite-size pieces. Set aside in a large mixing bowl.
4- Drizzle 2 Tbsp. of extra virgin olive oil on top of the cauliflower in the bowl and mix well until all pieces are lightly coated.
5- Add 1 Tbsp. of Cajun seasoning (can add more or less based on preference).
6- Cook for 15-20 minutes. Cauliflower will shrink in size and become soft. For a crispier bite, cook an additional 10 minutes.
7- Enjoy! Can be eaten alone, topped with lime, or added as a topping on your favorite salad.
