Baked Cauliflower Two Ways: Garlic Lemon Pepper and Spicy Curry

If you would’ve told me that I would be super into cauliflower a few years ago, I would’ve scoffed in your face.  I used to refer to it as broccoli’s bland and boring cousin.  But these days cauliflower is pretty much everywhere, and used for everything: rice, pizza, wings!  And like any good vegan, s I’m sure everyone knows, and I have gotten into it in a big way.  Anytime I see cauliflower wings at a restaurant, I am sure to order them!  At home baked cauliflower is one of my favourite snacks or appetizers.  Here I’m sharing my go-to flavour combinations: Garlic Lemon Pepper and Spicy Curry.
