Baked Cumin Cauliflower
1 head of cauliflower
Preheat oven to 400F degrees. Cut up the cauliflower into small florets (I usually do this in advance and leave them in the fridge until ready). Spread them out on a baking sheet, drizzle little olive oil all over, then sprinkle on the ground cumin. Bake for about 40 minutes. They should be tender and golden.

Shopping Notes: Buy head of cauliflower with tight, firm florets without any discoloration.
- Pull off outer leaves and cut stem flush.
- Cut head into 8 equal wedges so that core and florets remain intact.
