Curried Cauliflower

Deep flavors of curry with perfectly roasted cauliflower and the freshness of cilantro is a perfect side dish for an easy weeknight meal.

Curried Cauliflower is probably the side dish I make the most. It’s quick, easy, and delicious. It goes well with most of the quick, Indian inspired dinners that I make on a busy weeknight. Like a jar of butter chicken sauce or lamb saag. My kids ask for this on the regular! The trick is a high-temp oven to get the edges of the cauliflower crispy and a little bit of char, then finish it off with some cilantro. This is also a really nice substitute for rice if you’re wanting to cut some carbs or you can add this to a chicken salad with a cilantro-lime dressing. However you decide to enjoy it, think about making extra because at least when I make it, I end up snacking on it while I’m plating up dinner!
