crispy roast cauliflower

crispy roast spicy cauliflower

Another delight tweaked from Leon Fast Food. A quick and easy side dish. I suspected roasting cauliflower would render it quite dry, but surprisingly it’s still nice and juicy in the middle. I ran this one past one of the authors, who offered the following advice. I am going to make it again this weekend!

Crispy roast cauliflower:

1 head of cauliflower, slashed into florets

1 tablespoon cumin seeds

1 teaspoon turmeric

  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Scatter the ingredients in a large roasting tray and toss with plenty of oil, salt and pepper. Roast for 30 – 40 minutes, until you get “crispy brown bits at the edge.”

      Lemon peel is a great idea, nice one. I tried this again at the weekend, adding black onion seeds. They were great too.
