Roasted cauliflower & carrots with cumin & coriander

Roasted cauliflower & carrots with cumin & coriander recipe

As I mentioned in my recipe for chilli & ginger roasted carrots, I have a lot of love for roasted vegetables, even more so when they are kicked up a notch through the use of spices and fresh herbs.
I never used to care much for cauliflower and I must admit that until last year I’d never tried roasted cauliflower. But when I prepared it for the first time I just couldn’t believe what I’d been missing!
I was totally blown away by the amazing flavour, so much that it has now become my favourite way to enjoy this amazing yet overlooked vegetable.

This morning I have a very easy recipe for a super tasty side dish that I’m sure you’re going to love.
Slightly spicy, the cumin and the coriander are softened by the sweetness of the cauliflower and carrots for a side dish truly abundant with flavour.

So let’s see how to transform these humble vegetables into something amazing:

Roasted cauliflower & carrots with cumin & coriander

Serves: 4

Coated in spices and roasted until golden and tender, this is a super flavourful way to enjoy cauliflower and carrots.
  • 1 small cauliflower head (approximately 300g), cut into bite-size florets
  • 3 large carrots, skin on, cut into large chunks
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • 2 tsp of ground cumin
  • 1 tsp of ground coriander
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • A large handful of fresh chopped coriander
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200C.
  2. Cut the vegetables and place them in a large mixing bowl. Add the olive oil, the cumin and the coriander, then mix well to ensure the vegetables are evenly coated with the spices. Season with a little salt and pepper.
  3. Transfer the vegetables to an ovenproof dish and roast for about 40 minutes golden and tender.
  4. Sprinkle with fresh chopped coriander and serve hot.
