What Sam Eats

Salt and Pepper Roasted Cauliflower

It’s been a while, internet friends!

I recently switched roles at work, so I’ve been a bit stressed out and lazy lately. I’m still here though! This is my little hobby after all 🙂

Recently, I’ve craving salt and pepper squid (a must-order at Asian restaurants) but have been too lazy to prepare squid for the first time and not in the mood to eat out. So next best thing was for me to make a cauliflower version because 1. roasted cauliflower is so versatile 2. cauliflower wings brings back the mems and 3. this was is a quick way to satiate my craving.


What you need:
1 teaspoon grapeseed oil
1 tablespoon corn starch
a gratuitous sprinkle of salt and pepper
1 head of cauliflower, cut into florets

a mixing bowl
a baking sheet tray lined with parchment paper

1. Preheat oven to 420 degrees.
2. In a bowl, coat the cauliflower with the grapeseed oil, corn starch, salt and pepper.
3. Place cauliflower evenly on the parchment-lined baking sheet tray.
4. Put tray in oven for an hour, flipping every 15 minutes.

That’s it! The corn starch gives the cauliflower a bit of a crunch and crispiness as if they were fried, and the salt and pepper like low-key compliments the natural sweetness of the cauliflower.

If you end up trying this out, let me know what you think!
