Roasted Jamaican Jerk and Lime-Infused Cauliflower is paired with creamy and fluffy coconut rice and grilled corn for a delicious, healthy plant-based meal. The cauliflower is roasted to tender perfection and bursting with spicy and citrus flavor!
We don't really do cauliflower in my home for 2 reasons. One, my husband can't have it because it is a huge gout trigger and second, I've never liked it. I've found it to taste really nasty in most cases. I've discovered it needs to be masked well with flavor, and when it is, it can be fantastic. I finally LOVE it, thanks to this new recipe! I mean, talk about a flavor explosion! I'm absolutely in love with this roasted Jamaican Jerk Lime Cauliflower.
This cauliflower has so much incredible flavor and it's spicy, but not too spicy, deeply flavored and beautifully complimented with fresh lime juice to help those spices along. So so yummy I just gasped after the first bite.
When this cauliflower was cooking, I was completely intoxicated by the aromas coming from my oven. Omg. So heavenly were the smells from all the Jamaican spices.
I decided to serve it on a bed of creamy coconut brown rice and a side of grilled sweet corn. That way you get a creamy element, a spicy touch and a sweet compliment to it all. So much yum in 1 bowl! Oil-free and healthy to boot!
To make this Jamaican Jerk Lime Cauliflower and Coconut Rice: You only need 8 total ingredients (including salt & water).
First, let's make the rice by adding brown long grain rice, coconut milk, lime juice and salt to a pot and cook until fluffy.
While the rice is cooking, make the roasted oil-free Jamaican Cauliflower. Mix the Jamaican jerk seasoning, lime juice, coconut sugar and salt in a bowl.
Coat the cauliflower well. I find a large ziplock bag works best.
Spread the cauliflower out onto a sheet pan lined with parchment paper.
Bake until golden, tender perfection.
When the cauliflower is near the end of roasting, add your corn to a grill pan and cook until it becomes nice and toasty and make sure to stir it often.
Assemble into bowls and enjoy!
The cauliflower is bursting with flavor and is tender, juicy, spicy and downright delicious!
And the rice, oh yeah, delicious. My daughter, who claims to hate brown rice, devoured it and said it was "so yummy!" She really liked the creaminess that comes from the coconut milk and the hint of lime.
I hope you all love this dish as much as I did, be sure to leave feedback below after you make it!
