Golden Roasted Turmeric Cauliflower is a simple yet flavorful dish that has become a favorite in our household. The vibrant yellow color from the turmeric not only makes it visually appealing but also adds a subtle earthy flavor to the cauliflower. This recipe was inspired by my love for Indian cuisine and my desire to incorporate more anti-inflammatory ingredients into my meals.

I first tried this dish at a friend's dinner party, and I was immediately hooked. The combination of spices and the tender, slightly caramelized cauliflower made it an unforgettable experience. Since then, I've been making this dish regularly, experimenting with different spice blends and serving it as a side dish or even as a main course over rice or quinoa.

The best part about this recipe is its versatility. You can easily adjust the spices to your taste, add other vegetables, or even toss in some chickpeas for added protein. It's a great way to get creative in the kitchen while enjoying the numerous health benefits of turmeric.


  • 1 large head of cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the olive oil, turmeric, cumin, coriander, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper.
  3. Add the cauliflower florets to the bowl and toss until evenly coated with the spice mixture.
  4. Spread the cauliflower florets onto the prepared baking sheet in a single layer, ensuring they are not overcrowded.
