Cajun cauliflower:
  • 1 small head of cauliflower cut into florets, 3 heaping cups

  • ½ tsp red pepper flakes or use more smoked paprika
  • ½ tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp salt
Garlic pasta:
  • 8 oz penne (glutenfree if needed)
  • 2 tsp olive oil divided
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 cups unsweetened non dairy milk such as almond milk or soymilk or cashew milk for creamier
  • 1 tbsp flour (or use more starch to make gluten-free)
  • 1 tbsp arrowroot starch or cornstarch
  • 10 cloves of roasted garlic
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika
  • ¼ tsp dried thyme
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • ½ tsp salt
  • chopped basil or parsley for garnish
  • black pepper or cayenne and lemon juice for garnish

Cajun Cauliflower:
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Add the Cauliflower florets to a large bowl. Drizzle oil and mix using a spatula or rub it in using hands.
  2. In a small bowl, mix the ingredients under cajun spice blend. Add a bit more paprika if using mild. Sprinkle all over the cauliflower florets and toss to coat. (use 1.5 tbsp or more of premade cajun blend).
  3. Bake for 25 to 30 mins.
Garlic Pasta:
  1. Make the pasta according to instructions on the package, drain and set aside.
  2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium low heat. Add minced garlic and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or until golden, stirring occasionally.
  3. Meanwhile blend the rest of the ingredients (except garnish) until smooth. Add to the pan. Increase heat to medium.
  4. Bring the sauce to a boil stirring occasionally. Taste and adjust salt and flavor carefully. Simmer for another 2 minutes. Fold in the pasta. Take off heat, cover and let sit for 2 minutes
  5. To serve, add warm baked Cajun Cauliflower on top. Garnish with chopped parsley or basil, some pepper and lemon juice.
Variation: Mix 2 tablespoons breadcrumbs to the cajun spice blend for crispier baked cauliflower.

For saucier pasta, double the sauce or make 1.5 times with 3 cups non dairy milk. 

Use other hearty vegetables. Make a double or triple of the Cajun spice blend and use as much or as less depending on the amount of vegetables and your preference.
