Easy No-oil Roasted Curry Cauliflower

I can never predict which recipes are gonna be a hit; this roasted cauliflower is super easy and got a lot of attention on Instagram so I figured I should get it up here asap. 

This is originally my sister's creation. It takes 5 minutes to prepare, 25 minutes to bake in the oven and includes only 3 ingredients! Easy peasy but so delicious. 

Cauliflower is a super nutritious cruciferous vegetable that is high in vitamins C, K, folate, potassium and B6. 

I love the nutty flavor of cauliflower when baked in the oven. The best part is that you don't even need to use any oil, as the seasonings do all the work. 

I sprinkled the cauliflower with nutritional yeast, in addition to curry, but you can leave it out if you can't find it where you live. Nutritional yeast is a favorite among vegans because it contains B12 (if fortified, which most are) and has a naturally cheesy flavor. Nutritional yeast is NOT brewer's yeast, fyi, so don't try to sub anything for it.

1 head of cauliflower, broken into little trees
curry (enough to cover the cauliflower) 
nutritional yeast (ditto comment above) 
lemon juice

Once you have covered the cauliflower in curry and nutritional yeast, bake in the oven at 400 degrees F for 25 minutes or until your desired texture. I prefer my cauliflower with a little bite so 25 minutes was more than enough for me. Squeeze some lemon juice on top to really make the flavors pop. 

That's it. Easy, delicious, healthy.
