Crispy Baked Cauliflower

Well Winter is well and truly here in Melbourne. We had held onto Summer for so long this year, May was so warm. Now, that is cold, my Winter stomach has been gumbling along. You know the extra stomach you grow in the cold weather? Always hungry? That's me to a tee. I definitely eat more during the colder months but that doesn't mean I can't maintain a healthy diet, and my weight. 

Healthy spiced cauliflower

This recipe is the perfect cool-weather comforter that is satisfying and filling. The warming and smoky spices give this recipe a really hearty edge, and the healthy fats from the extra virgin olive oil make it feel heavier and kind of indulgent...but obviously it's not! It's wonderfully nourishing and tastes beautiful. And that's all I really want when I crave comfort food.
