Roasted garlic curried cauliflower is a healthy, spicy, side dish that everyone loves!
Although cauliflower is one of my favorite vegetables, I haven’t shared a cauliflower recipe here since the earwig incident. (Did you go read about it? Isn’t that horrifying? Blech).
Anyway, I was thinking of what recipes I wanted to share with you this month, and I realized that I needed to share my favorite roasted cauliflower recipe with you. Now, I love plain roasted cauliflower (just olive oil and salt) – it’s one of our favorite side dishes. I love the way roasting it brings out the sweetness of the cauliflower.
But when you add garlic and curry spices? Oh my word. It’s so incredibly delicious. And spicy, and healthy, and just all around good.
You can make this curried cauliflower as a side dish, or even as a snack! It’s so good, and it does not last long around here.
This cauliflower definitely has a kick from the curry powder…if you want it milder, just reduce the amount to suit your tastes. I would recommend reducing it somewhat for children.
I start out roasting it at 400 degrees, but then raise the heat to 425 for the last 15 minutes. That’s what gives it those nice crispy brown parts – those are the best!
Serve this garlic curried cauliflower with:
- chicken or fish
- a spicy vegetarian curry
- an assortment of other roasted veggies and rice
Roasted Garlic Curried Cauliflower.

WIth this amount of seasoning, this cauliflower is a bit spicy! You may want to reduce the amount of seasoning, especially if you are serving this to children.
