Ok, you guys are going to kill me for all the cauliflower recipes lately, but I just can’t help myself.

As a Weight Watcher, I am always trying to get my veggies in and they are a great way to bulk up my meals without adding more Points. And this Roasted Chile Lime Cauliflower Recipe is soooooo amazingly good.

Since roasted vegetables are a great way to add more volume to a meal, I am always experimenting with vegetables and various flavors. Cauliflower is a great vegetable to play with, because it’s own mild flavor allow for it to really pick up the flavors of whatever you cook it with. It’s such a versatile vegetable and I use it a ton of my Weight Watchers Recipes.

With a few simple spices and some fresh lime juice, the cauliflower takes on some wonderful aromatics and flavors in this incredibly easy recipe.

This Roasted Chile Lime Cauliflower makes a wonderful side dish for just about any main course.
