An Indian-inspired spice blend adds a warm hue and gives this vegetable dish an exotic taste.


  • 1 ½ tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon mustard seeds

  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds

  • ¾ teaspoon curry powder

  • ¾ teaspoon coarse salt

  • 1 large head cauliflower (about 2 pounds), cut into large florets

  • Nonstick olive-oil cooking spray


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. In a large bowl, stir together oil, mustard seeds, cumin seeds, curry powder, and salt. Add the cauliflower, tossing to coat thoroughly with spice mixture.

  2. Arrange cauliflower in a single layer on prepared sheet. Roast until florets are browned on bottom and tender when pierced with the tip of a paring knife, about 35 minutes. Serve hot.
