Roasted cauliflower is so yummy and this spicy whole roasted cauliflower is one of my favorites. Adapted from this recipe.
Serves: 1 head of cauliflower
  • 1 head organic cauliflower (1½ to 2 lbs)
  • 1½ cups plain Greek yogurt (here's how to make your own)
  • 1 lime, zested and juiced (I suggest only using ½ of the lime zest)
  • 2 Tablespoons chili powder (you may want to reduce this to 1, it gets pretty spicy)
  • 1 Tablespoon cumin (or 2 teaspoons, again it's pretty spicy)
  • 2 cloves organic garlic, pressed
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Wash the cauliflower and trim off the green leaves and any woody parts on the stem. Pat the cauliflower dry. Line a baking pan with a piece of parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Combine the remaining ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Dunk the cauliflower in the bowl, and use your hands or a brush to cover it evenly with the marinade. Place the cauliflower on the parchment-covered pan and use a brush to cover any empty spots before putting it in the oven.
  3. Roast the cauliflower in the oven for 30-40 minutes, until dry and brown all over. If any spots seem to be missing marinade, baste the cauliflower with extra marinade after 10 minutes, repeating as necessary. The marinade will make a crust on the cauliflower.
  4. Allow to cool for 10 minutes. Serve on a platter, cutting the cauliflower into wedges. Serve over lettuce and cucumbers with leftover marinade if you'd like, just mix a few tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and a splash of raw honey in with the marinade and drizzle on the vegetables.
