CAULIFLOWER DELIGHT [ great anti-inflammatory ]
You already know that cilantro and turmeric can help with inflammation. However, cauliflower is a great anti-inflammatory vegetable that can be used for lunch. You can often pair it with broccoli, but it’s great on its own, as seen in this wonderful recipe. It has vitamin K, vitamin C, and a ton of antioxidants that will help you out, and its anti-inflammatory properties are nothing less than impressive.
- 1 Cup Sunflower Oil
- 1 Tablespoon Cumin, Ground
- 2 ½ Teaspoons Turmeric, Ground
- 2 Teaspoons Crushed Red Pepper
- 4 Heads Cauliflower
- ¼ Cup Almonds
- 2 Tablespoons Cilantro, Chopped
- 1 Tablespoon Mint, Fresh & Chopped
- ¼ Teaspoon Sea Salt, Fine
Your oven is going to need to be turned onto to 425, and take a small bowl to combine your crushed red pepper, salt, turmeric, oil, and cumin. Take two large baking sheets, making sure to cut up your cauliflower and place it on the sheet. Take the spiced oil and drizzle it over it, making sure it’s coated well before seasoning it with salt. The cauliflower should be spread evenly over the sheet. Bake it for an hour, and switch the sheets about halfway through. Take a pie plate, and bake your almonds, which can be substituted for pine nuts. They should be toasted for about a minute before being taken out to cool. The cauliflower will then need to be put into a serving bowl, mix your mint, cilantro, and nuts before serving.
