Reviews forSmoky Cauliflower
"Excellent, we really loved this. No leftovers!"
"While I rarely can afford cauliflower, I do love it roasted with olive oil and sea salt. Since it was on sale this week, I bought a head and found this recipe. The addition of smoked paprika elevates this simple dish."
"I fixed this for the first time with guests present who thought it sounded good. I had washed & separated the cauliflower into florets earlier in the day and kept refrigerated. It was a quick & simple fix with that step out of the way. The dish was a hit! We all absolutely loved it. There wasn't a single bite left! Recipe is definitely a keeper and I plan to share it with friends & family."
"This is another recipe that we liked but there was no way I could prep it and have it on the table in 30 minutes. I really tried too. I didn't bake it any longer than the 20 minutes. Maybe breaking the cauliflower into 1 inch pieces isn't counted in the prep. Recipe was good."
"Really good and I'm just a so-so cauliflower fan!"
"Excellent! There were no leftovers. I didn't have smoked paprika so I just added a little of pepper to the paprika. When did the garlic, I added extra garlic along with more oil."
"I prepared the recipe and I ate it ALL! I did not have smoked paprika. I used regular Spanish paprika, 3 Tbsp. olive oil, 1 tsp. smoked hickory seasoning in place of the salt. I kept the garlic cloves the same-except I crushed the cloves! I admit that I didn't use parsley. This was a yummy dish and it WAS very simple to prepare! Thank you for sharing the recipe with Taste of Home! delowenstein"
"Delicious recipe and so easy to make! The aroma of smoked paprika and garlic was mouth watering. This is a keeper. I mixed the ingredients in a zip lock bag...added dehydrated garlic at the same time as the paprika and olive oil. The sprinkling of minced fresh parsley made the finished dish very eye appealing."
"A different tasty way to prepare cauliflower"
"This was really good and we enjoyed it. Another plus is that it is easy, and there are no exotic ingredients that you wouldn't have on hand."
