Oven Roasted Curried Cauliflower

Oven roasted cauliflower

This oven roasted curried cauliflower recipe is a breeze to make on weekday nights as a side, appetizer or a taco filling.

I have never really liked cauliflower. Tolerated it? Yes, liked? No! Hmm…not completely true. I love battered and deep fried cauliflower but honestly everything taste good when deep fried. This curry roasted cauliflower changed that and now I truly enjoy eating them.

Cauliflower by itself does not have much flavor but that is what makes it adaptable. Though this is the recipe I follow, feel free to experiment with flavors of your choice. I like adding turmeric along with other spices to my roasted cauliflower as it has anti-inflammatory properties and also gives a nice yellow color. Cauliflower is also a nutritious vegetable that is low carb and high in fiber. Cutting the cauliflower evenly helps roasting evenly.

I usually eat this oven roasted curried cauliflower as a side with baked salmon but it also goes well as a snack and taco filling.
