Curry Roasted Cauliflower - Your new favorite way to eat cauliflower

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 3/4 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.

    Found you on the Country Cook’s Weekend Potluck, and this looks delicious. Pinned it and will have to try it. I blog on simple ways to eat real and food and live naturally over at, and I love that this is delicious and healthy. ๐Ÿ™‚ Have you ever tried roasting with coconut oil instead of olive oil? It’s more heat stable and lends a slightly sweet hint to the dish. I love it.

    • JulieWunder February 28, 2016 at 5:32 pm - Reply

      I bet that would also be delicious! Coconut oil is amazing. Thanks for the suggestion. Heading over to your site now ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love roasted cauliflower, but have never thought to do it with curry! What a genius idea! I can’t wait to give it a try.

  22. Farrah February 25, 2016 at 6:49 pm - Reply

    Yay for curry! ๐Ÿ˜€ I still have yet to roast cauliflower, but this sounds so good! <3 I need to try this!!

    • JulieWunder February 28, 2016 at 9:59 am - Reply

      After liking this so much, I feel like there is not enough curry in my life ๐Ÿ™‚

    • JulieWunder February 28, 2016 at 5:22 pm - Reply

      Totally budget worthy too!

  23. Cora February 25, 2016 at 4:13 pm - Reply

    Yay! I was trying to think of a simple way to use the head of cauliflower in my fridge. Too lazy for cauliflower crust right now.
    The Pinterest layout looks great! I need to figure out how to do that

    • JulieWunder February 28, 2016 at 9:59 am - Reply

      Thanks Cora! I use PicMonkey to do it. The collage option.

    Yes! I was just feeling bored with my little batch of typical veggie side dishes. I need more. Hopefully my man likes this as much as your Hubs did. ๐Ÿ™‚ My most addictive dish that I’ve been way over-making lately is some crazy spicy and garlicky edamame. Can’t get enough! But really time to start making something new…

    • JulieWunder February 28, 2016 at 9:57 am - Reply

      That edamame sounds delish! You must share it!

  25. [email protected] February 25, 2016 at 8:40 am - Reply

    This does sound crazy addictive! I could even see myself eating this for a snack! Pinned!

    Alex and I LOVE roasted cauliflower. OMG I must make this! Pinning!

  27. A few weeks ago I roasted a cauliflower and ate the whole things for dinner! Yummy and easy

      It goes down so easy. Good thing it’s good for you.
