Ingredients needed

Cauliflower – Either chop the cauliflower head into florets yourself or save some time by buying pre-cut florets. Frozen cauliflower florets will also work. Simply mix the frozen cauliflower with the other ingredients and roast.

Olive oil – For oil free roasted cauliflower, omit the olive oil entirely.

Curry powder – Pre-mixed curry powder is usually made with a blend of ground turmeric, cumin, coriander, ginger, chili powder, black pepper, fenugreek, fennel, and more. It’s easy to find at most major grocery stores. For added warmth, add a sprinkle of garam masala or cinnamon to the curried cauliflower.

Salt and pepper

Lemon juice – Freshly squeezed is best!

Sauce. It’s made of vegan mayonaise, whole grain mustard (substitute for dijon if you prefer), lemon juice, curry powder and some paprika.

    Looks delicious! Cauliflower is what I call a “blank slate” food because you can move it any direction you want with spices and other flavors. It’s very adaptable!
