This can be served as a main course!

1 head cauliflower
1/4 cup olive oil
bunch of chives
8 oz cheddar cheese (mild, medium or sharp-your preference)

Mix below spices together in a bowl.

1/2 tsp smokey paprika (or smokey hot paprika-your choice)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp pepper
1/2 tp salt

Cut cauliflower into 1/2 inch pieces, brush both sides with olive oil, sprinkle with spice mix and lay on rimmed cookie sheet.  Bake at 400° 20 minute each side until brownish.

Serve on a bed of purple cole slaw for a tasty and beautiful presentation.

Then remove from oven, smother with cheese (pop back in oven to melt) and chives (as pictured) or with sautéed mushrooms and onion.  Enjoy!
