Sometimes the most delicious things are the most simple things. Have you ever roasted cauliflower in the oven? If you haven’t, you should. It’s amazing.
My favorite way to roast cauliflower is with curry spices. Turmeric is not only delicious, but it has tons of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties as well. Ginger and garlic are both immune boosting and will help you stay healthy during cold and flu season. I always add a titch of cinnamon to my curries to balance out the flavors with a bit of sweet.
I you’ve been reading my blog, you know that I am a big fan of cauliflower. Cauliflower is actually a super vegetable. It is loaded with Vitamin C, Folate, B Vitamins, Vitamin K, and Omega-3 fats. It also is considered to be anti-inflammatory and has anti-oxidant properties. Cauliflower supports your own body’s detox mechanisms by helping to activate detoxification enzymes. It also has been shown to be beneficial for cardiovascular health by decreasing inflammation which helps reduce the risk of blood vessel damage. (source)

I made this last night. Soooo tasty! The flavors are perfect for Fall. My only regret is not making two heads of cauliflower, because it is deliciously irresistible right out of the oven. Definitely a keeper!

Hi, Carla! Yay! I am so glad that you loved it. And thanks so much for taking the time to leave some feedback. 🙂
What would be a good main dish to serve with his?
Katja Heino says
I serve it with just about anything. You could serve it with a whole roasted chicken and braised greens on the side. Similarly, you could do baked chicken thighs and a big green salad. Or maybe a nice steak and salad. It really goes with just about anything. lately, I’ve been mixing the curried cauliflower with steamed kale. It’s delish that way. My family loves it.
