Oven roasted cauliflower

This is a quick and easy way to make cauliflower.  I make it sometimes for parties because it takes almost no time to prep and the whole thing cooks in the oven freeing up stovetop space for your other dishes.

With my plumbing disaster this morning, I was really glad that I had cauliflower on hand for a quick veggie dish to go with the whole moong dal.

If you have time, you can marinate the cauliflower in the spices for a while.  If not, you can toss the florets with the spices and pop it right into the oven.

Here is what you need:

  • 1 big cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 2 tsp. oil
  • salt to taste
  • 1 – 2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 tsp. coriander powder
  • ¼ tsp. turmeric
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder

Here is how I make it:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°
  2. Wash the florets and set aside
  3. In a big bowl, add all the other ingredients.  Mix well.
  4. Add the cauliflower florets to the spices and toss well to coat
  5. If you have time, let the florets marinate for ½ to 1 hour
  6. Spread the florets on a baking sheet and bake in the oven for about 10 minutes.
  7. Gently turn the florets over, return to the oven and bake for maybe 10 more minutes until the cauliflower is crispy on the outside and cooked well on the inside.

Serve with rotis and rice.
