Tasty RV Eats -> Curried Roasted Cauliflower
Cauliflower is one of those weird veggies that doesn’t have alot of individual taste, which actually makes it a GREAT base for all sorts of other flavor. One of our absolute favorite ways to make it is to roast it in the oven, and our absolute, absolute favorite flavoring is Indian curry.
This could not be an easier dish to make requiring only 4 ingredients and taking only 5-10 mins to put together, yet it tastes SO exotic and SO rich. Once mixed, all you have to do is sit around and sip your wine while you wait for the yumminess to develop in the oven. Many different versions of this recipe on the web, but for this post we’ve used THIS one. Also I used purple cauliflower instead of white, for no other reason than I saw it at the farmer’s market and wanted to try it. Regular cauliflower will do just fine, and if you want to make a medley you can add other veggies such as carrots and onions to the dish too. They will all roast together nicely.
Curried Roasted Cauliflower (serves 2-4)
Total time ~45 mins (5-10 mins prep, 35-40 mins cooking)
1 large head cauliflower (any type)
1/3 cup olive oil
2 teaspoons curry powder*
1 teaspoon ground cumin
*You can buy good quality curry powder at Asian stores, or make your own with THIS recipe. All curry powders have tumeric in them.
- Chopping Board
- Measuring Cup
- Roasting Pan
I’m partial to the commercial grade baking/roasting pans from Nordic Ware. They’re inexpensive and very rugged. When I roast veggies I line the pan with heavy duty aluminum foil. This way when I’m done cooking all I have to do is roll-up the foil and my cleaning is done….no water or soap needed. It’s great for boondocking.
- Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees F.
- Chop the cauliflower head into florets.
- Mix together the olive oil and spices.
- Place cauliflower florets on a foil-lined roasting pan and pour the dressing ontop. Toss to coat thoroughly.
- Roast in oven for ~35-40 minutes, stirring at half-point, until slightly browned.
- Serve and ENJOY! If you want to be fancy a nice cilantro garnish will pep up the presentation.
