Whole Roast Spiced Cauliflower



To serve:

  • handful of chopped almonds
  • handful of chopped fresh parsley
  • buttermilk, for drizzling (you can substitute this for yoghurt with a touch of lemon and milk to loosen up consistency)


  1. Preheat oven to 200C.
  2. Remove & discard any outer leaves from your cauliflower, then wash it and dry well.
  3. Cut off any excess stem at the base of the cauliflower so that it stands upright. Place it in a roasting pan lined with baking paper.
  4. Mix all the remaining ingredients together well, then spoon the mixture onto the cauliflower and use a spoon or brush to spread it out all over, making sure you cover the sides.
  5. Roast it in the oven for 1 hour to 1 hour & 20 minutes, until soft and cooked through and the outer layer is nicely browned and dry. This depends on the size of the cauliflower, so use a sharp thin knife to test it by piercing through the centre of the cauliflower; it should be soft without much resistance. TIP: if the cauliflower is browning too fast, you can cover it loosely with foil.


  • For the spices, you can use any spices you like. Pick your favourites and customise it to taste, or simply use 2-3 tsp of your favourite curry powder to simplify! Same goes for the toppings.
  • You could also make a simpler, more plain version by omitting the spiced yoghurt and just using some oil/butter and any spices/herbs of your choice.
