  • 1 Blas y Tir Cauliflower, leaves removed & cauliflower washed
  • 1 tsp Coconut Oil, melted
  • 1 tbsp Ground Turmeric Root
  • 1 tbsp Ground Cinnamon


  1. Steam the cauliflower whole for 15 minutes in a steamer or slow cooker.

  3. Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes at 180°.

Top Tip

Pre-steaming the cauliflower dramatically reduces the baking time in the oven, saving both time and energy. You can roast any other vegetables or side dishes in the oven whilst your cauliflower is roasting. This version is vegan, but you can add additional ingredients (like a parmesan crumble crust) if you want to – make it your own and have fun!
