Mommy and Me Recipe: Curry-Sprinkled Roasted Cauliflower

Sharing this recipe never occurred to me before, mainly because it didn’t really seem like a “recipe.” Three ingredients and simple prep didn’t really seem worth sharing, I guess. But this easy side dish has become a weekly favorite in our house, and I found myself thinking, Isn’t every parent looking for easy, healthy vegetable recipes?

Yes! And this one is totally toddler-friendly. :D

So, here it is:

Curry-Sprinkled Roasted Cauliflower

  • 1 head cauliflower
  • curry powder, to taste
  • Olive oil, for drizzling

->Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

->Rinse cauliflower and cut into bite-sized pieces. Spray large baking dish or baking sheet with non-stick spray (We use olive oil in a Misto sprayer to avoid using an aerosol can.)

->Arrange cauliflower in a thin layer in pan. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle generously with curry powder (we tend to be very generous…)

->Toss to coat.

->Roast at 350 degrees approximately 20-25 minutes (stirring occasionally), or until tender and nicely browned.

->Serve. It’s as easy as that! (*Note: Warmer weather is coming! If you’d rather not heat up your oven, try this in a foil packet on the grill!)

We’ve started making this with 2 heads of cauliflower because we all like it so much.  The Dada and I like to add a little sea salt to ours, but Little Man digs it just the way it is. Sometimes we even have to take it away from him because he tries to eat it by the fistful!

Tonight’s batch was served with baked sweet potato sticks and a cold cup of coconut water.

I say it every time: A toddler belly full of veggies makes my heart skip a beat! :) <<sigh>>

  1. Yum! Thanks for sharing.

  2. These look good and I bet they’d taste great on the grill too. After reading this Mom’s Guide to Caring for Little Teeth (http://www.1dental.com/moms-guide/), I started taking better inventory of what I feed my 4 year old. The result – way too much sugar and processed food! Trying to get more fruit and veggies back in his diet. Thanks for the idea!
