Cauliflower is a good source of vitamon C, vitamin K, folate, vitamin B6, fiber, pantothenic acid and phosphorous. It is also rich in cancer-fighting phytochemicals. The spice Turmeric is warm, earthy and blends wonderfully with the cauliflower. Turmeric has been shown to decrease the pain from rheumatoid arthritis and is a powerful antioxidant that can help protect against childhod cancers, including leukemia.
This recipe is suitable for babies 7-9 months and up, toddlers, big kids and adults. Always make sure the consistency of your baby's food is one he can handle. If serving as a fingerfood to your baby, make sure the pieces are nice and small.
What you'll need:
1 head of cauliflower - Washed and cut into florets. Discard rough stem.
2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon of Kosher or coarse grain sea salt
1 teaspoon of Turmeric - whenever possible, buy organic dried spices as they are far less likely to have been irradiated.
*Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
*Place cauliflower florets into a baking dish. Add the olive oil, salt and turmeric. Toss with a wooden spoon so the cauliflower is covered evenly with the olive oil and spices.
*Place the baking dish into the oven and roast for 25-30 minutes, stir about halfway through.
*Remove from oven and let cool for about 5 minutes.
*Serve and enjoy!
*Extra can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days in the refrigerator and up to 3 months in the freezer.
