sizzling cauliflower

Sizzling cauliflower says zing as a side dish or appetizer. Simply toss cauliflower florets with some olive oil and spices and roast for half an hour. You will have a bright, tasty and healthy addition to your table. If you are using as an appetizer, whip up some tahini dip as an accompaniment.

Print Recipe
Serves: 4-6 Cooking Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 head cauliflower, cored and cut into 1½'' florets
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • ½ teaspoon curry powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • tahini dipping sauce:
  • 1⁄2 cup tahini
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • ½ cup water

Instructions

1

Preheat oven to 425°. Line rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

2

Place cauliflower florets in medium bowl and sprinkle olive oil over the top. Toss to coat.

3

Add cumin, turmeric, curry, salt and pepper. Toss until cauliflower is evenly coated with seasonings.

4

Transfer to rimmed baking sheet; spread out evenly.

5

Bake until cauliflower is browned and tender, 25—30 minutes.

6

Serve warm or room temperature.

7

If serving as an appetizer, add hummus or tahini sauce for dipping.

8

Meanwhile, combine tahini, garlic, lemon juice, and ½ cup water in a small bowl and season with salt.

Notes

If you want some more heat, add some red chili flakes, a bit of chili powder and 2 teaspoons of minced garlic. When handling turmeric, be aware that it can leave stains. I've found leaving a stained pan or dish cloth in the sun for an afternoon will remove that stain.
