Ginger Curry Roasted Cauliflower

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

Easy Roasted Curry Ginger Cauliflower

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!

    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!
