Spicy Cauliflower & Potatoes

By October 13, 2015

Inspired from a recipe at Food.com.

 1 head cauliflower, broken into small florets
 2 cups (about 4-5 small) potatoes, cut into 1" dice
 2 cups (about 2 medium or half a large) sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1" dice
 2 tbsp oil
 1 tsp each: ground cumin, ground ginger, curry powder, chili powder, garlic or onion powder, sea salt
 Some freshly ground black pepper
1

Turn your oven to 400.

2

Place potatoes and cauliflower florets into a large bowl and shake as you drizzle with your oil to get them evenly covered. In a small bowl, mix together all your spices. This spice blend is just a recommendation, too-- use whatever you prefer (turmeric, garam masala, ground coriander or go for a different blend altogether.) Shake about 1/3 of the spices over the cauliflower and potatoes, then shake the bowl and repeat till you've used up all your spices.

3

Spread the cauliflower and potatoes in an even layer on two baking sheets-- making sure they aren't too crowded so they roast evenly.

4

Set a time for 20 minutes, then toss and rotate the pans in the oven. Roast 10-15 more minutes, making sure not to burn.

5

Serve warm as is, or as a side dish for a larger meal.
