Tasty Oven Roasted Cauliflower.

Due to the massive demand for Vegan, Vegetarian and Ital recipes, I launched a new series on YouTube, I call #MeatFreeMondays In doing so, I had to find a simple way to make Cauliflower tasty and stand out. Now… If you follow me on Instagram you would have already seen me bash Cauliflower as being the lamest vegetable on the planet. I have no love for this vegetable.. NONE! I’m much more of a fan of it’s cousin, Broccoli.

You’ll Need…

1 large cauliflower
1/2 – 3/4 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon Caribbean Green Seasoning
1 teaspoon curry powder
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon sea salt (divided)

Note – use smoked paprika instead of the curry powder should you want a different flavor profile. If doing this recipe gluten free, please go through the full list of ingredients to make sure they meet with your specific gluten free dietary needs.

Preheat the oven to 425 F

Then wash and cut the cauliflower into large pieces (I did 1/4s).

In a bowl, mix the olive oil, black pepper, 1/2 the salt, curry powder and green seasoning. Mix that well.. you now have a simple but marvelous marinade/dressing for the cauliflower pieces.

Place the cauliflower onto a baking tray and brush it with the dressing. Be generous on all sides.

Sprinkle on the remaining salt, then into the oven on the middle rack. (reminder 425 f).

35 minutes later and you’re done. However, for more of a golden/roasted color, you can keep it in for a bit longer. Remember to use the oil on the pan to brush the cauliflower after 15 minutes into roasting.

Note. Depending on how large the pieces of cauliflower you use are, it may take longer to fully cook.

Simple and delicious.. even for someone who regularly hates on cauliflower on Instagram. Drop me your comments below, tag me on Instagram and don’t forget you can now get my cookbook – The Vibrant Caribbean Pot, 100 Traditional And Fusion Recipes @
