Curried Cauliflower

I'm trying to eat more veggies. Especially now that all these farmer's markets are opening back up, there's really no reason not to; well, except for that one reason, what was it, oh yea, convenience. It's kinda sad that it's easier to get a pack of Doritos and eat chips than it is to say roast cauliflower. But convenience really can become somewhat of a non-factor with such easy yet delicious veggie preparations as roasted, curried cauliflower.

It's salty and crispy if done right, and it almost satisfies the junk food craving. And the fact that it's so satisfying to simply roast and eat a bowl of veggies makes it more pleasing than eating junk. No it's not as convenient as a bag of chips, but really the preparation is minimal and in the 20 minutes it takes to cook in the oven, you can be off doing your own thing. Here's the recipe.

1 head of cauliflower
a few pinches of curry powder
a few pinches of salt
2 tablespoons of oil

--Preheat oven to 450

-- Cut cauliflower into small pieces.

--Toss with remaining ingredients

--Roast for 25 minutes on a large baking sheet, shaking the cauliflower and reversing the direction of the sheet once during cooking.

-That's all. It's too easy not to do. Enjoy.

If you like curried cauliflower roasted, you should try gobi aloo curry, a curry with cauliflower and potatoes.

You mean vegetarians? That's one way to keep their numbers down [love them really].
