Roasted Cauliflower & Broccoli



  • 300 g broccoli, cut into florets
  • 300 g cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) olive or canola oil, lemon juice and black pepper to taste
  • 2 tsp (10 ml) cumin seeds or 1 tbsp (15 ml) ground cumin
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) Rooibos tea handful fresh mint or parsley


Preheat the oven to 200 ˚C. Mix veggies in a large bowl with the rest of the ingredients, except the mint or parsley.

Coat the veggies with the seasonings and place in a large oven dish.

Roast for 15-20 minutes or until just cooked. Stir in fresh herbs and serve hot or at room temperature.

Serve as a green veggie with grilled or roasted fish, chicken or meat of your choice. Enjoy a big portion of this side and add a medium portion of another starchy side dish. Choose any of the recipes from the side dish section.

Add chickpeas to the veggies for a more filling side dish.

Chilli or other seasonings like paprika or turmeric can be added to the veggies before roasting.
