  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, or enough to coat well.
  • 68 cloves garlic, rough chopped
  • 1 tablespoon coriander seeds, whole if possible (or use ground coriander)
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds, (or ground cumin)

  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/41/2 teaspoon chili flakes
  • zest of one lemon
  • 1/2 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley


  1. Preheat oven to 425F
  2. Trim leaves off the cauliflower, and cut it into small 1-inch florets.
  3. Place in a bowl and toss with the olive oil. Add the garlic, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, salt, pepper, chili flakes, lemon zest. Toss to coat well.
  4. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake in the middle rack of the oven for 20-25 minutes, tossing halfway through,  until fork tender and lightly edges are lightly crispy. Note: Depending on the size that you cut them this may need more or less time.
  5. Place in a serving dish making sure to get all the seeds from the tray- nd toss with the fresh chopped Italian parsley right before serving. Taste for salt, add more if needed. Add a squeeze of lemon juice if yo like.
  6. Leftovers will keep up to 4 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator, reheat in the oven or microwave. 


TIP: If your cauliflower is cut too big, your garlic may burn, so cut it into small florets (or for larger florets, cook at 400F for 30 minutes)
