Spicy Oven-Roasted Cauliflower


1 small cauliflower, (500g 1lb 2oz)

1 tbsp chilli oil

2 tbsp olive oil

Pinch of chilli powder

Salt and pepper

½ tsp ground cumin

Pinch of ground turmeric

3 slightly heaped tsp top Thai chilli paste


1.Preheat the oven to 190°C (375°F/Gas 5). Split the cauliflower into florets and place in a bowl. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper. Put both types of oil into a screw-top jar along with all the spices and chilli paste. Close the lid and shake the jar vigorously until the ingredients combine to makes a smooth paste.

2.Use your hands or a pastry brush to distribute the spicy paste all over the cauliflower florets. Spread the cauliflower over the baking tray and bake in the centre of the oven for 25-30 minutes. Use a toothpick to test whether it’s cooked; it should pass through a florets with resistance. The cauliflower is spicy and delicious warm or cold.

I have develop a passion for natural and healthy life style, starting with a vegan life style including regular exercising each day. Which helped to feel inspired and happy within myself. my diet is very restricted due to severe allergies! When ever a food triggers a hostile response from the body's immune system the result is an allergy attack, which on occasion may be life-threatening although it's relatively simple to identifying problem foods, avoiding them completely is not always easy. My journey with allergies hasn't been easy "but" it has helped me to becomes a stronger person and would like to share and encourage others to never get discouraged, there's always light at the end of the tunnel if you keep persevering.
