Roasted cauliflower with curry and turmeric is an easy and flavorful side dish. It's roasted in the oven, so it's easy to prepare and gets caramelized and delicious. This cauliflower recipe is a healthy and Whole30-friendly vegetable side dish.
Cauliflower is such a diverse vegetable. Just think of all the ways it's used. Cauliflower rice. Cauliflower gnocchi. Cauliflower pizza crust.
But one of the easiest ways to cook delicious cauliflower is to roast it. That caramelized texture it gets when it's been oven-roasted to perfection is divine. Just look at that photo above! It gets soft and crispy at the same time.
This oven roasted curry cauliflower packs a flavor punch. I also add a dash of turmeric, because, why not?
It's so easy to cut up a cauliflower (or buy a bag of pre-cut cauliflower if you're feeling lazy), add a bunch of spices and oil, mix to combine, and roast! It makes the perfect side dish.
- Curry Powder
- Olive oil
How to cut up a cauliflower
To cut up a cauliflower head, take the head and place it on a cutting board. Slice down the middle. You should be able to see the core.
Cut off the florets from the core, and make sure to remove the leaves as well. The florets are what you'll want to use in this recipe.
My current favorite knife to use to cut cauliflower is my big kiwi knife cleaver!
How to serve:
This oven-roasted curried cauliflower can be served as a side dish to so many meals like air fryer dijon salmon, air fryer chicken cutlet, or air fryer paprika chicken thighs.
It can also be served in tacos, grain bowls, or salads, or even curries! I love serving it in CAVA copycat bowls or with weeknight red lentil dahl.
