Cooking Time



  • 1 large head of cauliflower or 2 small heads, chopped into florets (about 6 cups)
  • 3 tablespoons virgin coconut oil, melted
  • 2 teaspoons garam masala
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • pinch of pepper


  • 1-2 tablespoons fresh parsley or cilantro, chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Place the cauliflower on the baking sheets. The smaller you chop the florets, the faster this dish will roast. Don’t over-crowd the cauliflower or it won’t crisp up.
  3. Pour the oil over the cauliflower, and then sprinkle the spices over top. Mix with your hands or a spoon to make sure the cauliflower is well coated.
  4. Roast in the over for 30-35 minutes, or until slightly crisp and golden. Top with fresh parsley or cilantro.
  5. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.


If you’re not a fan of these spices, roast the cauliflower with just salt and pepper, and it will be equally delicious and addictive.
