Can someone please help me figure out how to slow down time? As I type up this post, I am sitting at my parent’s house in Buffalo, N.Y. We’re here visiting for a week, enjoying family and friends and this cool fall weather – a far cry from the extreme heat we’ve been experiencing in California. I seriously don’t think there is any thing in the world that makes me happier than being around my family, smelling the amazing scents of home cooked food, spending time with my niece and nephew, laughing my ass off with good friends, visiting my favorite yoga studio and all of that good stuff that being home brings!
This trip has been an absolute whirlwind already and it is flying by so quickly! It’s just not enough time. We went to our good friend Dana and JP’s wedding Saturday night and we had our own little party yesterday, in hopes of seeing as many of our favorite people as we could over the weekend. It was wonderful. My heart is so full right now! This place will forever feel like home to me and give me a feeling that no other place in the world can.
I am sure you are wondering – what does this have to do with Curry Roasted Cauliflower? Honestly, nothing, really. But, as I was sitting down to write up this recipe I couldn’t imagine talking about anything other than how happy I am to be home. It didn’t feel right. I prepped and photographed this recipe (and a few others) before we left California and knew I would share it in this time I was away, but I figured I would do all of the writing while I was here.
This Roasted Curry Cauliflower with Feta and Cilantro has become a favorite of mine and for me, it is usually enjoyed as a meal itself. This perfect, quick and healthy dish to me, is the epitome of comfort food. It’s hearty, warming and properly spicy. The feta cheese brings a nice creamy, tang and the cilantro is just the perfect compliment to the curry and the feta. I usually add a quick squeeze of lime juice as I am serving this and a little pinch of red pepper flakes.
[print_this]Roasted Curry Cauliflower with Feta and Cilantro
- 1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
- 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon yellow curry powder (you may want more, depending on how spicy it is and you like)
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/3 cup sheep’s milk feta cheese, crumbled
- 1/4 cup cilantro, roughly chopped
- red pepper flakes, optional
- lime wedge
Preheat the oven to 425ºF.
Toss the cauliflower with the coconut oil, curry powder and sea salt, until the florets are all thoroughly and evenly coated. Spread in an even layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Roast for 25-30 minutes, until tender and lightly browned. Toss the cauliflower midway through roasting.
Transfer to a serving dish and top with crumbled feta cheese and cilantro. I like to add a little red pepper flakes and a squeeze of fresh lime. [/print_this]
