Whole Roasted Cauliflower

I’ll bet you haven’t roasted a whole head of cauliflower before. This recipe is so easy and presents well, not to mention delicious. Serve this cauliflower as a main dish or a side dish.


1 Tablespoon Olive Oil

1 Large Head Cauliflower

2 Cup Plain Greek Yogurt

Zest of 1 Lime

Juice of 1 Lime

2 Tablespoons Chile Powder

1 Tablespoon Cumin

1 Tablespoon Garlic Powder

1 Teaspoon Spicy Curry Powder

2 Teaspoons Kosher Salt

1 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Grease small-size baking sheet with olive oil and set aside. Trim base of cauliflower and remove woody stem and green leaves. In a medium-size bowl combine yogurt with lime zest and lime juice. Add chile powder, cumin, garlic powder, curry powder, kosher salt, and pepper. Dip cauliflower into bowl and smear marinade evenly over surface. Store any excess marinade in fridge for another use. Place cauliflower on oiled baking sheet. Place in oven and roast, uncovered, for 30 to 40 minutes. Cauliflower surface should be dry and make a lightly browned crust. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes. Transfer to a serving platter and cut into wedges. Serves 4 to 6.
