Lemon Turmeric Roasted Cauliflower

Cauliflower has been having a moment in the health food world and blogs. We are using it as rice, in gnocchi, in cheese, as risotto, and even as oats. I’ve been so focused on trying to be creative with this amazing versatile vegetable that I totally forgot about how delicious it is in its pure original form!

Lemon Turmeric Roasted Cauliflower Recipe

So I decided to bring it back with this Lemon Turmeric Roasted Cauliflower recipe. There’s something so delicious about the combination of lemon and turmeric so I decided to infuse that flavor into this savory and addicting side dish. I know it says it’s 4 servings, but I may or may not have eaten the whole thing in one sitting after making these. They are that good!

How to Make the Best Tasting Roasted Cauliflower

After roasting them for years, I’ve found that there are several tricks to making the tastiest cauliflower that’s evenly cooked with the best texture that’s crispy and not mushy:

  • When you cut them into florets, try to make them all similar in size to ensure even cooking.
  • If you wash the cauliflower before cooking, make sure they are dry before adding seasoning.
  • Toss with oil and seasoning in a separate bowl to make sure they are evenly coated.
  • Roast in an even single layer without crowding the pan. Use two pans if you need to.
  • Many ovens heat unevenly so make sure to turn the pan halfway through cooking.

These tips are pretty simple and easy to follow so make sure to not skip out on them. I promise – they really do make a difference!

Whole30 Honey Mustard (Paleo, Vegan)

There’s nothing better than this Whole30 Honey Mustard that goes great with any kind of protein dish or on salads. It’s paleo and vegan, and you won’t notice that it’s sweetened with fruit instead of honey!

Whole30 Honey Mustard Sauce

Was anyone else obsessed with honey mustard growing up? I used that put that sh** on eeeverything. It started out innocently with some chicken nuggets or chicken tenders, and then it became a serious habit as I started putting it on everything savory.

Whole30 Honey Mustard Recipe

I still love it to this day, but I think this new version, Whole30 honey mustard, is the best I’ve tried yet. Even though there’s no honey, the sauce is still so dang delicious and sweetened with medjool dates. The subtle sweetness of the dates with the spiciness of the mustard is an incredible combo, and I’m kicking myself for not making this sooner in my life.

I’ve already been using it as a sauce, dip, and dressing on the daily and I haven’t gotten sick of it yet.

And the best part? It comes together SO fast and so easily. Everything is thrown into the blender and you just blend it. If you don’t count the whole part where you have to soak the dates to soften them, it’s literally done in a minute.

Definitely my kinda recipe.

With just 5 ingredients (4 if you don’t count water), you’ll love this creamy and dreamy sauce made with the cleanest real foods, so feel free to load it up on everything!

Ways to Enjoy this Whole30 Honey Mustard

There are so many ways to enjoy this Whole30 honey mustard, and these are just a few ideas:

  • As marinade for chicken or pork
  • As salad dressing – you can add some water to thin it out if you want to use it this way.
  • As dip for chips, veggies, and cooked meats
  • Drizzled over your favorite gluten free avocado toast or in sandwiches and lettuce wraps
  • In deviled eggs, instead of regular mustard

Paleo Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

These Paleo Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins are so deliciously tart and they are a great on-the-go breakfast on busy mornings! Perfect with a cup of coffee.

Paleo Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

My mood has been on an all time high recently now that the weather is finally warming up, the days are crazy long,  and it really feels like Spring. And along with that, I’m looking forward to all the lighter and more colorful dishes, along with some grill recipes and tart baked goods to celebrate this new season.

And when I say tart baked goods, I mean all things lemon and citrus based. I just love the sour and sweet combo and I find it so refreshing and delicious, which is why I was so excited to make these Paleo Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins. These are grain free and nut free, made with cassava flour, and they are so lemony and Spring-y. I’ve been enjoying one in the morning with a hot mug of coffee to wash it all down and it’s been just the thing I need to brighten up my breakfast dish.

While the muffins themselves are fluffy and delicious on their own, I highly recommend you make the coconut lemon glaze to drizzle on top of them. It adds an extra lemony flavor to make this recipe shine even more, and adds a bit more moisture which is always good news when it comes to muffins.

Also, don’t forget the poppy seeds. They add a nutty and slightly fruity flavor, which complements so well with the lemons and makes the muffins extra tasty and special!

I guest posted these Paleo Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins recipe on Lauren Geertsen’s blog, Empowered Sustenance, so go check it out there. I hope you love them as much as I do!:
