Curry-Roasted Cauliflower

As you might remember, I'm taking a fiction writing class.  My piece was peer edited on Tuesday and after weeks of worrying how the class would react to it, I had my answer.  They liked it!

I felt like Susan Sarandon when she was onstage for the Oscars and exclaiming, "You like me!  You rrreealllly like me!!!"

After coming down from the flattery high, though, I am now faced with the daunting task of creating another piece they will like.  And now they have the first piece they all loved to compare it with.  Which, of course, makes me about 467 times more anxious.

So, happy writing for me and my forthcoming breakdown.

In the meantime, I am going to focus on blogging (which I think I can do) and providing you all with delicious recipes.  This one is not my own, but I'm sharing it anyway.  It's a Mama Pea classic with half the ingredients missing because I was too lazy to walk across the street to the store.  So, I guess I sort of made it my own?  Maybe?  Sort of?

Anyhoo, you should make this soon regardless.  I ate all of it in two days and could have eaten even more.   

 Curry-Roasted Cauliflower


1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp curry powder
1/2 tsp garam masala


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix the cauliflower with the oil and spices in a bowl.  Transfer to a baking sheet and roast for 20-25 minutes, tossing the cauliflower several times to ensure even roasting.  The cauliflower is finished when the stalk is easily pierced by a knife.
