Roasted Curried Cauliflower

Exactly how many days into the new year can we go and still wish one another Happy New Year? Let’s make today the cut-off day.

I’ve been away since last year, house and dog sitting. While I was away, I was cooking in a different kitchen, which presents a challenge. Will there be similar utensils to the ones I’m used to? Does this kitchen have the ingredients I need? Will I be able to find them? If I can’t, will I be able to improvise and still make something tasty to eat?

I fell back on this favourite way to eat cauliflower until I got comfortable in the kitchen – roasted. But this time, with the addition of curry flavours for a twist. I like the way the cauliflower tastes when it’s roasted… caramelized and sort of nutty with the edges almost burnt. Yum.

Here goes!
