Oven Roasted Cauliflower

After my ‘broccoli bliss’ with my oven roasted broccoli, i got hooked on roasting my vegetables. I’ve made the broccoli recipe three times since my original post. Talk about obsessions! Today, I tried to roast cauliflower, but with an Indian twist. It is quite similar to the broccoli recipe, simple and delicious.


1 large head of cauliflower, cut into small florets

2 garlic cloves minced

1/4 tsp of turmeric

1/2 tsp of salt

1 – 3 tsp of extra virgin olive oil

1/2 tsp of red pepper flakes

1/2 tsp of garam masala


Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a sheet pan with aluminium foil, and spray with non stick spray. In a bowl, toss all the ingredients together. Lay them on a single layer in the baking sheet, and bake them for 15 minutes. In an attempt to eating healthy and as I was eating this as my main dish for lunch today, I used very less oil and very less spices. But you can use upto 1 tbsp of oil. For even browning toss once after 10 minutes have passed.

Verdict: The cauliflower was roasted to golden brown and was really cripsy. The roasting gave it an almost sweet flavor.  What I love about this recipe is that, you can mix it and put it in the oven and thats all you would have to do. No tossing and turning and babysitting the dish on the stovetop.
