Roasted Cauliflower with Chorizo

An appetizing plate of Roasted Cauliflower with Chorizo

Roasted Cauliflower with Chorizo

2 lb. raw cauliflower florets

1 tbsp. high heat oil (avocado, grape seed, etc.)

1 (12 oz.) pkg. gluten free vegetarian chorizo (I use Tofurky gluten free chorizo) or 1 lb. grass-fed beef chorizo

1 medium onion, chopped

2 lg. garlic cloves, chopped

1 tsp. ground cumin (grass-fed beef chorizo may need 1 additional teaspoon)

3/4 cup coarsely chopped roasted red pepper (I use this brand)

1-1/2 cups vegetarian beef broth or real beef broth

1/2 tsp. konjac (glucommanan) powder (I use this brand) or 1 tbsp. non-GMO cornstarch

3 cups organic baby spinach leaves (loosely packed into cup)

1/3 cup coarsely chopped cilantro

1. Preheat oven to 425°F. In a large bowl, toss cauliflower with 1 tablespoon oil until coated. Arrange on a parchment lined baking sheet; sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Bake 30 minutes or until tender. Meanwhile, prepare sauce.

2. In a large non-stick skillet set over medium heat, brown chorizo (if using vegetarian, add onion and garlic now); breaking it up with a wooden spoon. Drain off all but 1 tbsp. fat (if using beef). Add onion and garlic, cook until onions are softened. Stir in cumin and roasted pepper, cook and stir 1 minute. Dissolve konjac or cornstarch in beef broth; add to chorizo mixture, bring to a boil; boil and stir several minutes. Adjust seasoning. Mixture will thicken as it cools slightly. Remove from heat, stir in spinach and cilantro until spinach wilts. Serve over cauliflower.(If you want a thicker sauce feel free to lightly sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon additional Konjac into sauce. Make sure you don't dump it in or you'll get lumps. You must either dissolve it in a tablespoon of water or sprinkle it over the top.
