I have always adored cauliflower, and have used it in a lot of great recipes. But some people fine cauliflower a little bland. This Indian Spiced Roasted Cauliflower Recipe definitely kicks up the spice and flavor without adding much additional Weight Watchers Points.
To get the Points for this recipe, I tallied up all the nutritional stats of the ingredients. Some people might argue with that and only count the yogurt, since vegetables are 0 Points. Doing it that way would make it just 1 Point per serving. Doing it my way makes it 2 Points. The choice is yours, but definitely give this easy cauliflower recipe a try!
It’s so good and makes a delicious and healthy side dish! I made this dish with a mint chutney (which appears in my photo), but didn’t include that in the recipe because I thought it was gross. And I don’t like to post anything that I think doesn’t taste good. So there you have it.
Now get in the kitchen and make this tasty Indian Spiced Roasted Cauliflower Recipe, ASAP!
