Chili Lime Roasted Cauliflower

In the past week, my husband has driven my car out of state (so our college daughter has reliable transportation to interviews), returning on the overnight Greyhound back.  We’ve gotten a flat tire, then discovered an inoperable spare (different trip).  And the kitchen has flooded (still not sure why the dishwasher turned on us).  

When life gets intense, thank goodness for recipes that are easy, tasty and healthy like this Chili Lime Roasted Cauliflower!The weeks before were even more intense but that’s a post for some later date.  Suffice it to say, I was very happy when my sister invited us to dinner and served us her delicious Chili Lime Roasted Cauliflower. 

If I have the recipe history correct, my niece originated the flavor combo (doesn’t it sound like something you’d get on really good tortilla chips!!)—and used it first on roast kale.  It was such a hit that when my sister got a head of cauliflower, she tried it there too.  Ding, ding, ding, another winner.

Out of oven!

Of course, they didn’t measure, so I played around.  If the amounts seem off, there is only me to blame!  But, seriously, if you need a vegetable that packs a flavor punch and is super easy, give this a try.  Take it from someone who knows.

It got me through another week… and that is no small feat.  When life gets intense, thank goodness for recipes that are easy, tasty and healthy like this Chili Lime Roasted Cauliflower!

  1. Great flavor combination – and I absolutely LOVE roasted cauliflower.

  2. Would have never thought of combining those ingredients, but it sounds fantastic!

    So sorry to hear about your bad luck lately, especially the dishwasher flooding. We were so mad when our refrigerator leaked for an entire day last fall.

    • Thanks Lisa. Bummer on the refrigerator–do you have hardwood floors too? The dishwasher incident sure reinforces not leaving town with the dishwasher running (which we’ve done).

  3. look delicious !!
    I love caulifower 🙂

  4. sounds more like one step forward, two steps back! hope things are turning around in the best way!
    i love roasted cauliflower, and your additions are perfect.

  5. Love roasted cauliflower and this flavor combo sounds delicious. So sorry life has been so hectic, hopefully things will calm down soon.
