Recipe type: Appetizer
Cuisine: American
Serves: 3
  • 1 whole cauliflower (bite size florets)
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • ⅛ tsp or slightly more cayenne pepper, or to taste (otherwise red chili powder)
  • 2 tsp paprika (chili powder without the heat, only color)
  • 1 tsp dried basil leaves ( omit this if you have parsley n thyme)
  • 1 tsp dried parsley (didn't use it)
  • 1 tsp thyme (didn't use it)
  • ¾ tbsp olive oil
  • ¾ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp sea salt (otherwise regular salt)
  1. Cut the cauliflower florets into bite size. Wash them thoroughly and set aside to drain the excess water.
  2. In the mean while, mixed all the spice rub ingredients except the oil in a small bowl.
  3. In a mixing bowl, put the olive oil and toss the cauliflower in it. Now sprinkle the spice rub all over the florets and mix using your hands and make sure they are coated well.
  4. Heat the oven at 425F. Cover the baking tray with parchment paper. Place the florets on the tray and bake it for 15 minutes. Turn once and bake for another 5-7 minutes.
  5. Serve hot as an appetizer with your choice of dipping sauce, I served it with ranch or as a side dish.
