  • Rating:


  • 4 tbsp grapeseed oil
  • scant 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • kosher salt
  • 1 medium head cauliflower, cut into 1-inch florets
  • 1 tbsp pine nuts, toasted
  • 2 tsp chopped cilantro
  • 1 tsp chopped mint


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine the oil, cumin, turmeric, crushed red pepper and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Toss cauliflower well in spiced oil to coat. Season with salt.

Spread the cauliflower in an even layer on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for about 1 hour, until browned and tender; stir the cauliflower halfway through cooking.

Transfer the cauliflower to a serving bowl. Sprinkle with the pine nuts, cilantro and mint and serve.
