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.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
Rinse the cauliflower and cut it up into florets.
Place the olive oil, minced garlic, curry powder, Garam Masala, and salt in a large bowl and whisk together.
Add the cauliflower florets and stir to coat.
Place the cauliflower on the baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes, then increase the heat to 425 degrees and bake for 10-15 minutes more.
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.
What’s your favorite way to eat cauliflower?
Super yummy! Thank you for the recipe.
Adding this to next week’s Menu Plan Monday! Can’t wait to try it! If serving to the kids, what do you recommend for the spice breakdown?
Do your kids like spice? You could always cut it in half to start, then add a little more if needed.
Ah maaaan the earwig incident! No fun at all!
So happy you decided to revisit a cauli recipe – curried anything’s my jam and I’m obsessed with all things roasted. This looks like perfection!

I love the sound of this cauliflower! I’ve roasted this once before, but never with curry. Sounds so flavorful!

Roasted cauliflower is the best kind! This looks like it’s just packed with flavor!
I love roasted cauliflower–I bet it’s amazing with those spices!

What a great way to perk up regular cauliflower! I seriously love all the spices that you coated this in! I want to dig into my screen! ;)
Mmmmmm…I love cauliflower! We can’t do garlic, but I would use all the other ingredients and I bet it’d taste amazing!
Yes, it would still have lots of flavor! :)
This looks great! My mom used to make a rather involved cauliflower dish with a curry sauce; this looks much easier for weeknights.
Thank you so much! It is very easy!
I literally just bought curry powder for a recipe and had no idea what else to use it in. This sounds so simple and delicious! I adore cauliflower and use it all the time, but I love the idea of using it in a side dish like this!
I hope you enjoy it!
What a great side dish! I love easy ones like this!
