Cajun Roasted Cauliflower Steaks with Homemade Cajun Seasoning

I’m sure the last thing you want to be thinking about is heating your oven up to 425 degrees right now, but how gorgeous does this “steak” look?  I bet you didn’t think cauliflower could be so pretty.  I certainly didn’t.  I also didn’t think it could be this delicious, but it is.

If you haven’t had roasted cauliflower before, try it!  Even if cauliflower isn’t your favorite veggie, you’ll love it roasted!  I love it with chili powder or curry powder, but I’ve recently discovered that Cajun seasoning is delicious on it too.  I thought cutting cauliflower into “steaks” would be a fun idea, but I didn’t know it would be so pretty!  But you can just do simple bite sized pieces of cauliflower this way too, I made a note in the recipe because the time to roast it will be a little less.

For my hubby and kids I tone down the spiciness when I make our own Cajun seasoning and I only add a small amount.  Not only does it save money, this way everyone can enjoy it too.  Then for myself I can always add a pinch or two of cayenne to make it spicier just for myself.

I love making my own spice blends.  What’s your favorite spice blend?  I love pumpkin pie spice, not just in pumpkin pie Cajun Roasted Cauliflower Steaks with Homemade Cajun Seasoning  Do you like making your own spice blends?
