PREP, COOK, TOTAL TIME
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
Serves: 4 to 6
1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
2 tablespoon LouAna® 100% Pure Coconut Oil, melted
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 cup almonds, roughly chopped
4 to 5 sprigs of mint, minced
1 ruby red grapefruit, segmented
1 naval orange, segmented
2 tablespoons LouAna® 100% Pure Coconut Oil, melted
Juice from half a lemon
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. On a parchment or foil-lined baking sheet, toss the cauliflower florets with the coconut oil. Sprinkle the cauliflower with a few pinches of salt and crushed red pepper flakes. Roast for 15 to 20 minutes, until the florets are brown on the edges and fork-tender.
Add the florets to a large bowl, along with the almonds and mint. In a small bowl, whisk together the melted coconut oil, juice from half a lemon, pinch of cumin, pinch of coriander and a pinch of salt. Pour the dressing over the florets and toss until thoroughly coated.
Transfer cauliflower to a serving bowl and arrange the segments of grapefruit and orange around the bowl. Serve room temperature.
