This Roasted Cauliflower side dish is one that you will want to make over and over again. Packed with a spice mix that not only tastes amazing but provides so many health benefits!
I know, I know, we can only tolerate so much cauliflower. THAT is why I came up with this delicious cauliflower treat. Not “treat” as in sweet tasting, but treat as in “this doesn’t taste like boring old cauliflower and my taste buds are happy”.
My garden is in full swing with things needing to be picked every day. Tonight, I went out and picked a few heads of cauliflower.

Is Roasted Cauliflower Healthy?
It sure is! Cauliflower is a healthy vegetable to add to your diet.
One of the best things about cauliflower is that it is low in calories and high in nutrients! SCORE! Most importantly, it is high in fiber which is important for a healthy keto diet!
It is also high in antioxidants which I’ll take any day!
It is also usable in so many fashions that can replace higher carb foods (mashed potatoes, pasta, etc..)
Benefits of Turmeric
It’s not just the turmeric that provides the benefit, but also the garlic and onion. Combining turmeric, garlic, onion, black pepper and a fatty oil is one of my favorite things to do.
There are SO many health benefits when you put these together.

As usual – nothing exotic needed for this recipe!

How to Make Roasted Cauliflower
Luckily making keto roasted cauliflower is incredibly simple!
You start with a fresh head of cauliflower and cut it into large florets. I find that if you cut them too small, the outside gets too done and the inside doesn’t get done enough.
So cut them into large florets.
Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and lay your cauliflower florets on it.
Paint with the spice mixture until nice and coated.
Below is right before putting them into the oven!
You then pop them in the oven until nice and baked. The cooking time for this recipe will give you a medium cooked cauliflower. Not too mushy and not too crunchy.
You can adjust the baking temperature based on your doneness preferences.
This recipe calls to cook them for 17-20 minutes.
