Whole baked Cauliflower with Mint Chutney



Spicy whole roasted cauliflower? Does that not sound inviting to you?It does to me. The husband of mine has a particular disgust for cauliflower ever since he was a child. I tried to convince him soon after we got married with a Mauritian ‘carry di zef bouille ek li sous fler’ (hard-boiled eggs and cauliflower curry). Very Mauritian and I love love love it. I was so confident my newly wedded husband will ask me to marry him again after eating this cauliflower curry but what happen was that we was left in a snow storm Irish weather, a leaking lunch box, cold rice, cold boiled eggs and freezing cauliflower for lunch in the car. Now I don’t blame him nobody would want that after all.

5 years in and I am still trying to win him over. Today I roasted a whole cauliflower! not out of rage but the recipe call for a whole roast cauliflower head. Rub in some fat free yogurt and curry powder. Dipped in a fresh garlic and mint chutney..

It had to be good for that anti cauliflower guy almost finished half of the cauliflower. Do you know anybody who hate cauliflower? Then try this recipe, feed them and share some of your lovely cooking pictures with us.
