I had been craving cauliflower lately and saw a tempting recipe for roasted cauliflower with lemon, cumin & sumac. Inspired by this and wishing to create something that could serve as a whole meal I decided to add some small yellow potatoes and then toss in the feta cheese. Served with some toasted pita bread and hummus this made a very tasty and filling meatless meal.
Spiced Roasted Cauliflower & Potatoes w/ Lemon & Feta
Serves 2 people as an entree.
1/2 head of cauliflower trimmed and broken into florets
6-8 small yellow potatoes such as Dutch yellow or Fingerling
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp cumin
coarse kosher salt
2 tblsp lemon juice
handful of fresh chopped cilantro
about 1 cup of crumbled feta cheese
Preheat oven to 425 °
Place cauliflower and potatoes in a shallow baking dish large enough to accommodate as a single layer. Drizzle about 2 tblsp of olive oil over them. Sprinkle with smoked paprika, cumin, a couple of good pinches of salt and lemon pepper. Toss to coat evenly. Roast for about 20-25 minutes occasionally shaking and stirring to rotate potatoes and cauliflower throughout. When potatoes are fork tender and cauliflower is deep golden brown remove from the oven. While oven is still hot place 2 pita breads on oven rack and let toast until slightly crispy and charred. Meahwhile sprinkle lemon juice and cilantro and feta over the potatoes and cauliflower and toss together.
Serve with toasted pita and a dollop of hummus on the side.
