  • 1 large head cauliflower chopped roughly into bite sized florets
  • 1 T cumin
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp garam marsala
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp native natural sweetener or 2 tsp norbu sweetener or sweetener of choice
  • 2 T olive oil


  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Coat a large baking dish/pan with oil and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add the cauliflower and toss through all the spices. Add the olive oil and using your hands, mix well to ensure all florets are coated with the spices and the oil.
  • Add the cauliflower on an even layer on the baking tray and cook for 15 minutes, or until it gets golden, flip and cook for another 15 minutes until the edges are golden brown and slightly charred.
  • Remove from oven and serve immediately.


This cauliflower tastes amazing eaten cold, through a salad or even on it's own. It can be kept refrigerated for up to 3 days, covered.
