Spiced, Roasted Cauliflower.

Spiced, Roasted Cauliflower.

As anyone who knows their vegetables will tell you, roasted cauliflower with a touch of oil and spices is terrific, and for what it lacks in color, it more than makes up in flavor.








Spiced, Roasted Cauliflower:

Notes Before You Start:

  • You can use any variety of cauliflower for this recipe.
  • If you don’t have cumin seeds, just add a bit more ground cumin.

What You Get: Sweet, salty, spicy and crisp cauliflower.

What You Need: No special equipment required.


(Serves 4-6)

  • 2 medium heads of cauliflower, stem and green leaves removed
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon whole cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Scallion, chives and/or Italian parsley, for garnish.


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Combine the oil, salt, pepper and spices in a large bowl. Mix thoroughly.
  2. Cut the florets off the cauliflower and break into roughly 1/2 inch pieces. If making “steaks” cut the cauliflower cross-wise into 3/4 inch slices. Toss the florets in the oil mixture and/or brush the oil mixture on both sides of the “steaks”. Place the cauliflower pieces on a large baking sheet.
  3. Roast the cauliflower in the oven for 25-30 minutes, or until soft in the center and golden brown on the outside. Flip the steaks or toss the florets halfway through the cooking time. When done, remove the cauliflower from the oven, taste and adjust seasoning. Garnish with sliced scallions, chives or Italian parsley, if you like. Serve.
