Roasted Cajun Cauliflower with Bell Pepper Bites ("Lean & Lively")
Recipe: Roasted Cajun Cauliflower with Bell Pepper Bites ("Lean & Lively")
Don't be afraid if you don't usually like cauliflower. I don't usually like it either. Most times it tastes so bland and lifeless to me, especially boiled or cold on a salad. This version is roasted and served warm. Roasting cauliflower brings out a richer flavor, and the addition of a Cajun seasoning really gives the whole thing zing. It's a great veggie alternative to potatoes when you are cutting down on starch. And ... this makes a great side dish for "Southwestern Pork Tenderloin with Chipotle Drizzle Sauce."
Serves 3 to 4. (Can be doubled.)
One small cauliflower cut up into small bites. (These bites will be about an inch long at the most. No large chunks.)
1/2 red bell pepper cut into large dice
1/2 orange bell pepper cut into large dice
Cajun seasoning or rub
Put your cauliflower and pepper bites in a roasting pan. Spray with olive oil. Dust lightly (or to taste) with a sprinkle of Cajun seasoning. Roast for 15 minutes. Stir and serve. The roasted cauliflower will have a richer flavor, and the Cajun season adds a nice zing! The pepper bites are for vitamins and color.
