Even my kids will eat cauliflower when I make it like this. Roasting cauliflower in the oven makes it crunchy and the mixture of salt, brown sugar, and curry powder adds a slightly sweet flavor.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 head cauliflower, broken into florets
  • 1 ½ teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon mild curry powder

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet with 1 tablespoon olive oil.
  2. 2 Combine cauliflower and 2 tablespoons olive oil in a bowl. Mix brown sugar, salt, and curry powder in a small bowl. Taste and adjust until mixture is sweet and salty. Sprinkle over cauliflower and mix well. Spread cauliflower in a single layer on the baking sheet.
  3. 3 Roast in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. Turn cauliflower and roast for an additional 15 to 20 minutes.

  1. Made as written and liked. I'm not generally a fan of sweetened vegetables...and actually, roasting veggies does bring out a sweetness anyway, but this was very good. It's really not that much sugar to add, after all...and can be adjusted down in the prep stage of things.
  2. Just like it says - easy. Delicious
  3. Love this easy recipe.. it’s become my go to on busy days
  4. Easily my favorite way to eat cauliflower besides raw covered in hummus. I could serve this to guests and feel confident.
  5. Loved loved loved this cauliflower preparation. I roasted 2 heards if cauliflowers and I barely had enough leftovers for lunch cause my family just gobbled it all up
  6. So simple and so delicious! It was such a hit- next time I will have to triple the recipe, we ran out within minutes
  7. This recipe is outstanding! I roasted carrots mixed with the cauliflower. Delicious!
  8. Fantastic! I don't normally add sugar to my food, but decided to go with it. This is SO good! I cut my florets a little smaller, so I ended only roasting for 20 mins + an additional 10. The sugar/curry mixture add so much flavor and caramelizes nicely to give a nice crunch on some - Read more ...
  9. I doubled the seasoning since I used two small cauliflower heads and it came out delicious. Only change I would make in the future is to reduce the salt a bit.
