chili-roasted-cauliflower[Image: Courtesy of Rachel Gurk]Looking to spice up a healthy treat? The answer may be as simple as adding chili powder. Take this recipe from Rachel Gurk’s blog, Rachel Cooks, which uses only four ingredients and fits into the Whole30 program. Cauliflower is a nutritious source of vitamins C and K, as well as fiber—which is good for gut health and keeping your appetite satisfied. The versatile dish can be enjoyed on its own or added to other meals, like salads or burrito bowls, and Gurk says it’s one of her favorite ways to eat the vegetable. “The chili powder isn’t spicy (in my opinion),” she writes. “It adds a great southwestern flavor that will have you craving cauliflower—seriously!”
