spiced roasted cauliflower!

This is one of my new favorite dishes! I LOVE it! Serves 3 people as a side dish. I'd double it ;)

1 medium-large head of cauliflower
3 tablespoons rice bran oil (or oil of your choice)
1 & 1/4 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/4 teaspoon spanish paprika
1/4 teaspoon chipotle pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic granules
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
dash of ground ginger

Cut cauliflower into small florets. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. In a glass baking dish, mix all the spices together, then add the oil. Once this is all mixed together, add the cauliflower, rubbing the oil/spice mixture into the florets as much as possible.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, then, using a spatula, mix up again, then cook for 10 more minutes.

I hope you love this as much as I do! Obviously, if there are any spices listed that you don't like, please feel free to omit or change as you please. This is a fairly spicy dish but it doesn't have to be (or you can make it even spicier!).
