If you can’t eat french fries every night, the least you can do is cook your other veggies up in a way you can pretend they are fries. This is my favorite way to cook cauliflower (closely followed by my Cheesy Cauliflower Bake but this one is a LOT healthier). It turns out tender but with a little crunchiness on the edges. No mushy veggies here. Even your pickiest vegetable haters will go for this one.
Roasted Cauliflower “Fries”
1 head cauliflower
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp. oregano
2 tsp. olive oil
*All of the above measurements are completely open to interpretation. I sprinkle, I pinch, I drizzle. But some people like to measure so I guessed at how much I put on there. Feel free to adjust to your tastes.
Preheat the oven to 400˚. Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray. Break up or chop cauliflower into bite sized pieces and spread on the cookie sheet. Sprinkle with spices. Drizzle with oil. Toss around a bit with your fingers to coat all of the cauliflower.
Bake for 30 minutes until cauliflower is tender and starting to brown on the edges. I usually stir around once or twice in there during the cooking time.
