  • Pre-heat oven to 360F (180c) and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  • Combine the cauliflower, paprika, turmeric, salt and oil in a large bowl and toss well to coat the cauliflower.
  • Place the mixture onto the tray in a single layer.
  • Roast for 20-25 minutes or until golden and tender.


  • Not fully cooked? Cut the florets smaller and into even sizes or cook for longer.
  • Too spicy? Reduce the paprika to 1/2 teaspoon.
  • Leftover roast cauliflower? Keep in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days. Reheat in the microwave or in the oven at 360F (180c) for around 10 minutes.
  • Change the spices? Substitute in any of your favorite ground spices here like cumin, coriander, ground chili, cayenne, curry powder or chili flakes.
