Raise your hand if impulse buys in the produce section of Whole Foods are a regular occurrence for you. Just me? I’m sure I’m not the only one. Not long ago the purple and orange heads of cauliflower you see below were calling my name. As someone who willingly admits to have eaten an entire head of crispy roasted cauliflower for dinner in the past, visions of delicious, perfectly charred, savoury florets immediately filled my mind. My mouth was watering at the thought of it, so into the cart they went.

As I mentioned a couple of months ago for these Miso Cod Power Bowls, one of the best bits about miso is that it’s a fermented food. During the fermentation process, lots of lovely gut-friendly probiotics are produced, which we benefit from when we eat fermented foods. Many of you have shared that gut health is a huge priority for you, so I thought I’d give you yet another delicious use for this lovely, savoury probiotic-packed paste.

I like to roast my cauliflower in batches to ensure that all the little pieces can sit in single layers, rather than being crowded on one pan. This seems to be the best setup for even roasting, in addition to a nice hot oven. My cauliflower took about 25 minutes to crisp up, and if you want a little extra char, feel free to leave them in for longer or turn up the broil setting in the final minute or two of cooking.

Oh, and one last note….If you’d like an extra punch of spice, go ahead and add a squirt of sriracha. Not essential, but highly recommended!
