Spicy Roasted Cauliflower

posted in: Recipes, Sides, Various Sides | 3

There are a lot of vegetables I never ate before becoming a vegetarian, including cauliflower. I only wish I had known what I was missing years ago. Roasted cauliflower is especially sublime.
I had leftover eggplant the other night, so I threw it in the freezer for later. I thawed it out, tossed it with some whole wheat spaghetti, and made this to go on the side.
Spicy Roasted Cauliflower


1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
1 or 2 tablespoons olive oil
½ teaspoon brown mustard seeds
½ teaspoon ground coriander
½ teaspoon paprika
¼ teaspoon whole cumin seeds
¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
¼ teaspoon celery seed
¼ teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 400F. Toss cauliflower with oil in a medium bowl. Add spices and toss again to coat. Spread in a single layer in an oiled, shallow pan. Roast for 30 minutes, stirring twice.
