  1. Pre-heat your oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Cut the cauliflower into large chunks.
  3. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  4. Place the cauliflower on the baking sheet and toss it with spices.
  5. Cover tightly with foil and bake for 15 minutes. (This will prevent the cauliflower from burning during the roasting process.)
  6. Remove the cauliflower from the oven and remove the foil.
  7. Keep uncovered and place the cauliflower back in the oven, and continue roasting for 30 minutes, or until the cauliflower starts to turn brown.
  8. Remove from the oven, and adjust seasonings according to taste- you may need a little more salt.
  9. Enjoy!
  10. Garnished with kale chips and sliced red peppers.
Recipe Notes

Turmeric (Curcuma longa), the bright yellow of the spice rainbow, is a powerful medicine that has long been used in the Chinese and Indian systems of medicine as an anti-inflammatory agent to treat a wide variety of conditions, including flatulence, jaundice, menstrual difficulties, bloody urine, hemorrhage, toothache, bruises, chest pain, and colic.

Turmeric Teams Up with Cauliflower to Halt Prostate Cancer

Scientists tested turmeric, a concentrated source of the phytonutrient curcumin, along with phenethyl isothiocyanates, a phytochemical abundant in cruciferous vegetables including cauliflower, cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, kale, kohlrabi and turnips.

Black pepper enhances bioavailability of Turmeric:

Most of the curcumin that is ingested gets metabolized before it can get absorbed. Piperine is said to help make curcumin more bioavailable.

This could be because it could inhibit certain intestinal digestive enzymes. This increases the amount of any drug or supplement that can be absorbed by the body. They also do not get degraded quickly.

Hence, there are studies to test if co-administering curcumin with piperine could improve the bioavailability of the former.
