For all of you who are not crazy about cauliflower, you should give this recipe a try. I was skeptical at first, but after tasting this Roasted Curry Ginger Cauliflower, I'm a believer that all plain, boring, unappealing foods can be turned into something amazing.
I made this side dish to go along with my Crock Pot Curry Chicken. I was in a very curry mood. While my crock pot was cooking away, I tossed together the cauliflower with the olive oil and spices and popped them in the oven-the prep work couldn't be easier. After 30 minutes in the oven, the unappealing cauliflower turned into something that was making my mouth water. The richness of flavors from the curry and ginger make this cauliflower one of the tastiest vegetables I've ever tried. And with very little oil used, this side dish is relatively healthy! Easy, delicious, appealing, and healthy? How about this recipe also requires minimal clean-up. Yep, just crumble up the aluminum foil and throw it away and you are done. This recipe is hands down one that you need to try. If you are not a fan of curry, that's quite alright; use this recipe as a base and substitute your favorite spices in place of the curry and ginger. This is one of my new favorite dishes, and I'm confident that it will become one of yours as well.
