Roasted Cauliflower and Chia Seeds


Yields: 4 servings
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1-tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 head cauliflower, broken into fleurets
  • salt and pepper to taste



Preheat oven at 375 °F.

Heat olive oil and pepper flakes in a small saucepan over medium heat for about 3 minutes to infuse the flavor of the pepper into the oil. Set aside.

Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Transfer the cauliflower to the baking sheet and drizzle with infused olive oil. Toss with tongs to coat. Sprinkle the chia seeds over the cauliflower and add salt and pepper to taste.

Bake cauliflower for 30-35 minutes, or until softened and just beginning to brown.
