Baked Cauliflower with Pumpkin Pie Spice and Curry Powder

A friend recently posted a baked cauliflower dish on their Facebook page, and I was tagged by another friend indicating they like to make this with a mix of Pumpkin Pie Spice and Curry Powder.  I was inspired and decided to cook it immediately.

This is a super easy and very healthy dish that sure pleases one and all.  From the time I left the Pinch workshop to plating was less than two hours, making this is a perfect weeknight dish.  You could easily change the spices you use, but I urge you to try this dish in all it’s fall flavored glory.  One note, the original post called for panko breadcrumbs, which I didn’t have, so I  used all purpose flour.  I believe panko would make it a little crispier and I will be using it next time.
