[one_half]

Ingredients

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 head cauliflower

1½ cups plain Greek yogurt

1 lime, zested and juiced

2 tablespoons chile powder

1 tablespoon cumin

1 tablespoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon curry powder

2 teaspoons kosher salt

1 teaspoon black pepper[/one_half]

[one_half_last]

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 400° and lightly grease a small baking sheet with vegetable oil. Set aside.

2. Trim the base of the cauliflower to remove any green leaves and the woody stem.

3. In a medium bowl, combine the yogurt with the lime zest and juice, chile powder, cumin, garlic powder, curry powder, salt and pepper.

4. Dunk the cauliflower into the bowl and use a brush or your hands to smear the marinade evenly over its surface. (Excess marinade can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to three days and used with meat, fish or other veggies.)

5. Place the cauliflower on the prepared baking sheet and roast until the surface is dry and lightly browned, 30 to 40 minutes. The marinade will make a crust on the surface of the cauliflower.

6. Let the cauliflower cool for 10 minutes before cutting it into wedges and serving alongside a big green salad.[/one_half_last]

Herb-Roasted Veggie Chips

Makes 4 to 6 snack-sized servings • Start to Finish: 40 minutes

[one_half]

Ingredients

4 small golden beets

4 small red beets

2 small turnips

2 medium parsnips

1 bunch radishes

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1½ tablespoons salt

2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper

3 tablespoons chopped fresh herbs (such as rosemary, sage, and/or thyme)[/one_half]

[one_half_last]

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

2. Thinly slice the vegetables to about ⅛ inch thick (as thin as you can). Using a mandoline or the slicing side of a box grater can speed up the process, but a knife works just as well.

3. Toss the veggies into a large bowl with the olive oil (you may want to toss the red beets separately to avoid turning everything pink). Spread them in an even layer onto the prepared baking sheets, making sure they do not overlap too much.

4. Sprinkle the salt, pepper and herbs evenly over the two baking sheets. Roast the vegetables until golden brown and crisp, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool completely before serving. Store in an airtight container to maintain the crisp texture for up to one week.[/one_half_last]
