This recipe is from Good and Cheap.
Good and Cheap is a gorgeous cookbook for people with limited income, particularly on a $4/day food stamps budget. The PDF is free (ahora en Español!) and has been downloaded more than 15,000,000 times. I have more cookbooks, too!
Roasted veggies are always delicious, but there’s something magical that happens to cauliflower in the oven. It gets so crispy and nutty, and that flavor is brought out even more with the spices here. If you are on the fence about cauliflower, try it prepared this way and you’ll become a believer. I’m happy to just eat a bowl of the cauliflower for dinner, but when I feel like making a truly proper meal out of it I nestle the cauliflower into tacos. The crunchy bits, spices and the meatiness of the cauliflower texture make these really satisfying. I have made these for large crowds and always get good reviews from young and old, vegetarian and non-vegetarian alike.
