For 3 people:

1 medium cauliflower

2 tablespoons of homemade vegeta

0.5 teaspoon of salt

1 tablespoon of garlic powder

1 teaspoon sweet paprika powder

1 teaspoon ground thyme (or 2 sprigs fresh)

1 teaspoon ground cumin

2 tablespoons of vegetable oil (or soy sauce)


Turn on the oven at 220 degrees Celsius.

Carefully cut out the hard part of the stem from the cauliflower – cut a little deeper each time and make sure that the cauliflower remains in one piece. If a flower falls off, there’s nothing wrong, we’ll just have a few smaller cauliflowers. Save the leaves for a smoothie or soup. Place the cauliflower so that the stems are at the bottom and the flowers are at the top. Cut 1 cm to 2 cm thick pieces and carefully place them on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.

Sprinkle each piece with a few pinches of vegeta, garlic, paprika, thyme and cumin and a pinch of salt, as some of it is already in the vegeta. Better less than too much! Drizzle with oil or soy sauce and massage each piece with your fingers so that there is some spice and oil everywhere.

Place the cauliflower in the preheated oven and bake for about 30 minutes. A little earlier, we check with a fork if the thickest pieces are nicely softened and have acquired some color.

Let’s serve. As a side dish, we can prepare roasted asparagus and garlic puree.
