Roasted Cauliflower with Chipotle and Lime - Easy To Make

This Roasted Cauliflower with Chipotle and Lime recipe is a must-have if you are a fan of chipotle, and you might be tempted to give it a try even if you don’t really like cauliflower.

It’s because you can’t really even tell it’s cauliflower with the spicy-smokey seasonings and the tangy flavor from the lime.

This recipe is really simple to make and it works well as a side dish or as an appetizer/snack. And, I may or may not have been know to eat an entire batch by myself as a meal :0

Cauliflower is a good, low-carb alternative to white starchy potatoes and it can adapt to different flavor combinations like chipotle + lime.

Tip #1:  I’ve used both frozen and fresh cauliflower and although frozen works, the fresh seems to come out better.

Tip #2: I know it seems like a long time to roast the cauliflower in the oven, but it’s worth the extra time. The “slow + low heat” method will give the best results. It only takes a few minutes to prep the recipe and get it in the oven so it’s a good recipe to make on a day when you have other things to do and can just leave them in the oven to slowly roast…there’s not really any hands-on time needed once they’re in the oven.

Tip #3:  I like chipotle ~alot~ so if you don’t like too much spicy, just start with 1/2 tablespoon and add more if you prefer.
