Ginger Curry Roasted Cauliflower

This recipe for ginger curry roasted cauliflower is bursting with flavor and always seems to disappear in a flash! It’s a nutritious and delicious side dish that’s always a crowd pleaser.  

Easy Roasted Curry Ginger Cauliflower

Don’t you love it when a simple side dish steps up to the plate and unexpectedly steals the show at dinner?

Last night Ryan and I made buffalo chicken burgers for dinner and while they were quite tasty, a ridiculously easy side dish of ginger curry roasted cauliflower was the highlight of our meal.

I’ve been making roasted cauliflower with curry powder for ages, but the simple addition of ginger really kicked up the flavor and had me immediately wishing I made a double batch. The cauliflower disappeared in a flash!

Simple Ginger Curry Roasted Cauliflower

Ginger Curry Roasted Cauliflower

Makes four side-dish servings


  • 1 head cauliflower, trimmed and cut into florets
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Toss everything together in a bowl and pour onto a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray
  3. Roast in the oven for 25 – 30 minutes

Though the head of cauliflower I chopped up wasn’t too big, Ryan and I had no problem polishing off the entire thing between the two of us. We loved this dish and were really hungry, but I’d say that under normal circumstances the recipe would likely yield four side-dish servings.


This morning I awoke in a pancake mood!

I made a batch of almond butter pancakes topped with shaved coconut and a bit of syrup.

Plus some extra-foamy coffee on the side!

Aero Latte Foam

Yesterday I rediscovered my Aero Latte milk frother and, as I said on Instagram, felt awfully fancy as I sipped a cup of frothy coffee at my desk. Naturally I had to repeat the fun this morning!

A little extra foam makes a normal cup of coffee feel extra special. It’s the little things!

    I like cauliflower but rarely buy it cause I hate cutting it up, same as broccoli, weird, right?! I must try this recipe though!
    I agree, it is the little things and that form on your am coffee makes it so much better 🙂 Love my foam too.


  2. says

    I love foamy coffee! Correction: I love foam, not coffee. I will seriously order coffee drinks, ask to have them extra extra foamy, and only “drink” the foam. The coffee at the bottom remains untouched. I wonder how a barista would respond if I just ordered foam. 😉

    Such a simple post and yet I love everything about it! I love roasted cauliflower but it’s been way too long since I’ve had them. And since I love ginger I’m all over this.

    Almond butter pancakes – SOOOO good. I also use coconut flour and oat flour (steel cut oats ground into a flour). Pancakes every weekend!

    Frothy milk – YES PLEASE! I just bought my bf a milk frother and you better believe I’ve become a milk frothing fiend.

    Happy Friday!

      has he tried roasted cauliflower recently? i feel like most people think they don’t like cauliflower, but for some reason roasted cauliflower has a totally different taste than most people expect. i hope you can convert him!! 😀

    THANK YOU for not one, but TWO recipes in this post 🙂 i really enjoy your recipes because they are no frill, and seem easy! Thanks for sharing!! I am adding cauliflower to my grocery list immediately! And I LOVE spicy buffalo chicken–perfect for NFL weekend! Thanks for the recipes!

    cutting cauliflower is a pain but i use my ceramic knife and itz totally no big deal! i would highly recommend investing in one if you don’t already have one! the ginger curry flavors sound amazing with roasted cauliflower!


  6. Ally says

    I sometimes wonder if your recipe measurements are correct or you just dont like spice…1/4 of a teaspoon of something???? thats like a few gains of whatever spice you use. is that correct?


  7. says

    Wow, this cauliflower looks amazing! I love making curry cauliflower, but I’ve never thought to add ginger before! I think I might have to try it and see if I can actually convince my meat-and-potatoes husband to try some! Also, I’m right there with you on the frother. Who needs Starbucks?!


  8. Katelyn says

    I have never had cauliflower, ever. I’m awfully scared to try it, but I may just have to test this recipe out! It looks pretty good! 🙂

    Also, Julie, I sent you an email a few weeks ago about a giveaway I’d like to send in. I have been anxiously awaiting a reply back and I just wanted to let you know- maybe it went in your spam or something. I also recently sent it to your fb account just in case 🙂 Thanks!


  9. says

    I’ve never tried cooked cauliflower before! Can you believe it? I hate the texture of it raw so I’ve never felt compelled to buy it at the store. I wonder if this recipe could change my cauliflower-phobia :).


  10. says

    Did you use skim milk?? I’ve tried to froth my almond milk before with no success! I have to wonder if it’s the almond milk or if its just my frothing ability? 😉

    Hi Julie,

    Just wanted to let you know you were a HUGE inspiration for me to start writing my own blog about running 1000 miles this year. I always wanted to start a blog but didn’t have a good idea for one..I knew I wanted it to be fitness related but not a copy cat of yours. I read yours daily and hope you’ll be interested in checking out mine 🙂


  12. says

    Ooooooooh yum on the cauliflower! I’ve just started using cauliflower more, since discovering that mashing it up with Kerrygold garlic butter is as good (and healthier – yay!) as mashed potatoes. Totally giving your recipe a whirl this weekend!!!


  13. Kayla K. says

    I used to be a barista at a local coffee shop and people order “dry” cappuccinos all the time… 9:1 ratio of foam to espresso.


  14. says

    That milk frother sounds like a winner! Mine from World Market broke on me 🙁 But it WAS only like, $3 lol. And I love veggies like cauli, broccoli, and chewy fibrous ones because they’re so tasty and best of all, hearty! It’s almost like the main dish sometimes in my opinion. I think recipes like yours def. allow more people to be adventurous with vegetables.


  15. says

    Roasted cauliflower and roasted brussel sprouts are on the agenda of new vegetables for me to try this year. I’ve had them both in different forms before, but I have a feeling roasting them will be much tastier. Can’t wait to try this recipe!


  16. says

    I just started reading your blog, and I LOVE all the recipes! This cauliflower looks amazing and simple, I can’t wait to try it. PS…I love how obsessed you are with your pup- I just got my first puppy (a golden retriever), and I can’t stop taking pictures of him!


  17. kayla says

    i’ve been using my aerolatte as well this winter and it totally makes me feel like i’m drinking a starbucks latte at home, minus the extra $4.00! i love it!


  18. says

    Ooh, I love both curry & cauliflower… I think I’ll definitely have to try this recipe out! I’ve tried roasted cauliflower before, but it’s never come out “right” for me. I really want to have it come out good someday, though, so maybe it’s time for me to try again with this one.


  19. Zoe says

    I made this for dinner tonight and it was amazing!! I had to stop myself from eating the whole thing…it was THAT good, seriously!

    I also wanted to say how much I LOVE your workouts!! I think I’ve done almost every circuit workout and a good bit of the treadmill workouts. I always get the best workouts in when I have a plan and you’re workouts make it so easy and they’re also just great workouts, never boring at all. so THANK YOU!!!


  20. says

    I only had half a head to use so I made that while keeping the spices the same (I don’t mind a bit of spice). I actually think I could have spiced it up a bit more, but what I ended up with was still nice and tasty. I didn’t use nearly as much olive oil, since I like to try to keep that as low as possible, but I still managed to get all of the pieces covered enough so that the spices stuck nicely. The recipe was very easy – will definitely make again.


  21. says

    Fabulous dish! Great for using up other odds n ends of veggies with the cauliflower. I threw in the chopped last hunk of a trusty red cabbage head and an extra onion. It all tastes good in the roasted seasonings! Thanks!


  22. says

    I think that what you said made a great deal of sense.

    However, consider this, suppose you were to create a awesome post title?

    I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your website, but suppose you added a headline that makes people desire more? I mean Ginger Curry Roasted Cauliflower | Peanut Butter Fingers is a little boring. You should glance at Yahoo’s home page and see how they
    create article titles to grab viewers to click.
    You might add a video or a related picture or two to grab people
    interested about everything’ve got to say. In my opinion, it would bring your blog a little livelier.

    Thanks so much for sharing your Ginger Curry Roasted Cauliflower Recipe. I make it regularly now along with your Garam Masala Chicken and Chickpea recipe. These are two tasty dishes, I must say!!! I was not familiar with Garam Masala until I tried your recipe, and now I am a convert! The cilantro and yogurt/sour cream is a must and really adds to the dish. Thanks again!
    AOT from a UF Kappa Delta Alum!

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the
    book in it or something. I think that you could do with a few
    pics to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is excellent
    blog. A fantastic read. I will certainly be back.


  25. says

    Does your blog have a contact page? I’m having problems locating it but, I’d like to shoot you an email.
    I’ve got some suggestions for your blog you might be interested in hearing.
    Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it develop over time.

    I cubed up a sweet potato and added it with the cauliflower and pretty much quadrupled the spices and it turned out amazing! My wife and I are spice junkies 🙂


  27. Brook says

    WOW! I paired this cauliflower with the sausage/peppers/onion dish and holy moly this was good! I may or may not have eaten the whole head of cauliflower I roasted….whoops. New found fav for sure!
