How to Make Pita-Crusted Baked Cauliflower

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Combine the pita crumbs, turmeric, salt, and pepper in a prep bowl. In another prep bowl whisk together the flour and eggs. Set aside.
  3. Cut cauliflower and/or broccoli into large florets.
  4. Dip each floret one at a time in the egg mixture, coating it entirely then roll the vegetables in the bread crumbs to coat evenly. Repeat with the remaining florets.
  5. Transfer the vegetables to a parchment-lined jelly roll pan or similar pan. Drizzle lightly with olive oil.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes until golden brown. Note: The vegetables will not cook all the way through and will be somewhat raw.
  7. Transfer the vegetables to a serving platter and serve with muhammara dip (as seen in photo above): Magical Muhammara
