Mix up your side dishes with my crazy addictive Curry Roasted Cauliflower recipe.
Hi, happy healthy friends!
I had some cauliflower left over after using it for a prop in another post. I try to be really food waste-conscious, and make sure the Hubs and I eat every I buy for the blog, so I decided to brainstorm cauliflower ideas.
I've been wanting to make my own cauliflower pizza crust and "rice", but I wasn't feeling ambitious enough to make it happen.
So I decided to mix up the spices on a simple roasted cauliflower and add some Indian flavor. The result is this Curry Roasted Cauliflower and it is crazy addictive.
I set this dish on the table for the Hubs and I to try the night I made it, alongside our real meal. It was a "bonus" per-say and my thought process was we'd just try it and reheat it as a side dish later in the week. I had made a LOT of food that day.
So, I had one piece, loved it and went onto the eating my real dinner.
I didn't fill the Hubs in on my little "plan" to eat this later in the week, and a few minutes later I look down and ¾ of the plate is gone! The Hubs could NOT stop eating it. So once I figured we weren't going to have it for leftovers, I helped him finish it off.
This stuff is so addictive we ate the entire head of cauliflower in one sitting.
You've been warned! Only set out what you actually want to eat or it's all over. This just might be your new favorite way to eat cauliflower.
Pin for later!
