Roasted Cauliflower and Potatoes with Cumin and Turmeric

Roasted Cauliflower and Potatoes with Cumin and Turmeric

I don’t know about you but I love roasted vegetables with just about any meal! Roasted cauliflower and potatoes is a winning combo because they go with so many things or make a great filling for tacos. The roasting process when cooking vegetables really helps create a deep rich flavor and sweetness that you would not get from boiling and steaming. For extra flavor, I added cumin and turmeric because I love those flavors and the turmeric adds extra health benefits.

This dish takes only 20-25 minutes so it is perfect for a healthy weeknight side dish or meal. As I mentioned before, this can be used as a taco filling too which tastes great. I sometimes will just add some avocado and salsa to the tacos to complete it and it is a 100% vegetarian and delicious taco. I will also make a batch of these veggies to add to rice bowls with a protein like grilled chicken or pork.

However you decide to use this recipe, it will be delicious!
