Vegan Anti-inflammatory Roasted Cauliflower Nuggets

Roasted Cauliflower, Curried cauliflower, roast cauliflower recipe, Modern Food Stories, food photography

One of my simplest recipes and yet one of my tastiest. If you love cauliflower and spices then you’ll love these Vegan Anti-inflammatory Roasted Cauliflower Nuggets. Smothered in lashings of gut healing and immune restoring spices like turmeric, black pepper, coriander, cumin and paprika. They’re a super easy side dish that really lends itself to autumn, a time when we’re starting to crave more comforting, wholesome ingredients that nurture and restore.

I love Roasted Cauliflower nuggets not only for their anti-inflammatory benefits but their simplicity. Pair with whatever protein takes your fancy. I’m also a fan of these topped on a good soup… because no soup is complete in my life without a tasty topper! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
