With all the roasted veggie recipes on Damn Delicious, it’s no surprise that I am finally adding cauliflower to my arsenal.

 I feel like cauliflower is constantly outshined by broccoli, but cauliflower will be making a comeback very soon, especially when it’s prepared like this.

All you need is coconut oil, garlic, salt and pepper – these are all pantry ingredients that you already have on hand.

Now the coconut oil is something new here. I typically roast my vegetables with olive oil but the coconut oil brings in such an amazing rich flavor, and it’s such a heart-healthy ingredient!

And if you’re feeling frisky, you can add fresh or dried herbs as well as some crushed red pepper flakes for a kick of heat.

My next version will be adding in Sriracha and maple syrup for a sweet and spicy version. Stay tuned!
