Turmeric Roasted Cauliflower and Quinoa

Tonights dinner is brought to you by the healthy foods and spices of: cauliflower, turmeric, ginger, and quinoa.

This is the first time I've had quinoa.  It was pretty good.  I had heard great things about it.  I cheated and was going to use this recipe but decided just to buy a pre-mix.

You can see dinner details below.  On another side note - I'm supposed to start Ipi on Wednesday.  Right now we are still waiting for insurance to approve.  Stay tuned!

Cauliflower specifically has been called out as tumeric’s partner in crime-fighting prostate cancer, making this dish even better than we thought.
serves 6 as a side dish


4 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
1½ teaspoons turmeric
1 head cauliflower, cut into extra small florets, about the size of marbles (save all parts of the stems for something else like mashed faux-tatoes or pureed soup)
½ teaspoon salt (or to taste)
black pepper to taste
chopped fresh cilantro leaves for garnish


Preheat oven to 400°F.
In the bottom of a large bowl, whisk together olive oil, ginger, and turmeric. Add cauliflower and toss until florets are evenly coated. Season with salt and black pepper.
Place cauliflower in a single layer on lightly oiled baking sheet. Roast until brown at edges and tender, about 20 minutes. Toss with fresh cilantro right before serving.
