Gluten-free Oven Baked Turmeric Cauliflower


What’s for dinner that is gluten-free and delicious?  Fellow healthy chef, Lee Holmes, author of Supercharged Food: Eat Your Way to Health. and I created this delicious, baked cauliflower dish and others in a Facebook Live video, live from Happy Gut Kitchen. (follow Happy Gut Facebook here.)

‚ÄúTurmeric is a lively root, with a heady , earthy ¬†fragrance, known for its Hogwarts magical healing powers and¬† can transform ¬†unglamorous, fr umpy vegetables into golden anti -inflammatory bundles of wellness,‚ÄĚ says Lee.

‚ÄúBy adding a sprinkling¬†of cracked pepper to this dish, the curcuminoids (the actual anti-inflammatory phytochemicals in turmeric) are made available to the body,‚ÄĚ says Dr. Pedre.

Supercharged Tip: If you are using fresh turmeric, handle with care as it stains easily, if you do happen to turn your  favorite  garment yellow.  Try squeezing on lemon juice or eucalyptus oil to  help remove turmeric stains.
