Oven Baked Turmeric Cauliflower With Onions And Garlic

like eating cauliflower all the time as it has a nice creamy flavour and rich texture. It also fills me up for hours.
This is the recipe for a delicious yet healthy side dish. It is best eaten warm accompanying roast chicken or roasted sweet potato and creamy thick vegetarian sauce. The best thing is that it is so easy and quick to make.
Turmeric has been my number one spice for a long time. I like to use it all year long. Itโ€™s pungent, bitter flavour takes every dish to another level. And it is very healthy too!
Not only high in antioxidants, it also has healing properties and anti-inflammatory benefits. If you are a fan of turmeric and looking for some inspiration, check my other recipes.
