Spicy and easy to make, this recipe is my favorite with cauliflower.


  • 2 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 medium tomato (seeded and finely chopped)
  • 1 Tbs black and yellow mustard seeds
  • ½   jalapeño (seeded and minced)
  • 1 teaspoon minced peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 head cauliflower (cut into florets)
  • Salt (I use coarse salt)


  1. Preheat oven to 425ºF / 220ºC
  2. On a small bowl, combine oil, tomato, mustard seeds, jalapeño, ginger and turmeric.
  3. On a large baking dish toss the cauliflower florets with the flavored oil.
  4. Season with salt and spread on an even layer.
  5. Roast for about 25 minutes, or until lightly browned and barely tender.
  6. Serve hot or at room temperature.


You can make it ahead and reheat before serving. It lasts for several days in a container with a lid.
