Cauliflower is a staple of a Keto diet whether it’s in the form of cauliflower or cauliflower mash. With so many different cauliflower preparations, it can be easy to get lost or overwhelmed when you’re looking for a quick and easy side. That’s where this Keto roasted turmeric cauliflower comes in. Roasted cauliflower is the ultimate low-prep, high-reward side dish. With only a few minutes of preparation, you can have a flavorful side that transcends its humble origins becoming crunchy on the edges and silky smooth in the middle. The addition of turmeric adds color, punch, and of course, antioxidants to this simple side. You can easily double the recipe and store in an air-tight refrigerated container to have flavorful cauliflower on hand all week long.

Top Tips for the Best Roasted Cauliflower

  1. Always buy the freshest cauliflower you can find at the store, free from any brown, gray, or mushy spots. Fresh cauliflower should be heavy for its size with healthy green leaves and no unsightly holes. Fresh cauliflower can be stored in the fridge for up to 7 days. For maximum shelf-life, store in an airtight plastic bag with a paper towel to absorb moisture.
  2. Roasting can be an excellent way to use a vegetable that is nearing the end of its shelf-life, but you should never roast cauliflower that has begun to brown or mold. When in doubt, err on the side of caution.
  3. Cutting the cauliflower into evenly sized pieces is the best way to ensure even cooking. Quartering the head can be a good way to break it down into a more manageable size for further cutting.
  4. Did you know that you can actually roast frozen cauliflower too? This is a great time saver as many people (including myself) keep frozen veggies in the fridge for emergencies. Simply crank up the oven to 450 and cut the cook time in half, 15 minutes with foil, 15 minutes uncovered.
