Curry Roasted Cauliflower

Such a simple dish but it’s so yummy!  Slightly caramelized on the outside with a burst of flavor followed by a creamy buttery inside.

Here is what you will need: Cauliflower, Olive Oil,  Curry Powder, Turmeric, Smoked Paprika and some sea salt.

Curry Cauliflower & Spices Vertical

I highly recommend using a good quality curry powder.. Not the cheapo $1.99 stuff in the grocery store.  I buy mine from an asian market.  90% of the label is in another language but this is the real deal.

As far as the smoked paprika.. OH MY!  I LOVE this stuff.. Not the boring zero-taste paprika you put on deviled eggs.. This amazing spice is full of smokey flavor and more robust than plain paprika but still mild.  I add it to lots of dishes.

Back to the recipe.. Start with some cauliflower… You can chop up a head or use the pre-cut florets

Give them a good drizzle of olive oil

You can do this in a bowl but that means extra dishes.. I just combine it on the sheet pan.  You could also line the pan with foil for a super easy clean-up.

GRAB A GLOVE (or a spoon)  I love these gloves.. We used them in the restaurant and I always have a box at home.. They are great for handling raw chicken and ring, ring.. You hear the phone.. No problem, just whip off the glove and talk away.. No need to run to the sink and wash your hands.  Just throw the glove away when you are done.

***WARNING – LADIES, DO NOT USE BARE HANDS..  I once made the mistake of making this the day after getting my nails done.. My Beautiful French Manicure turned into an ugly Yellow stained curry manicure…

 Massage the cauliflower for a few minutes until it is completely coated..
