Whole Roasted Cauliflower

I had a different main dish planned, but once I saw this whole roasted cauliflower I knew it was something that I needed to try for Thanksgiving. To me it seemed similar to roasting a turkey for Thanksgiving. However, this takes much less time and planning to roast than a turkey.

Recipe from Huffington Post.

A Turkeyless Thanksgiving:

-1 tablespoon vegetable oil
-1 head cauliflower
-1½ cups plain Greek yogurt
-1 lime, zested and juiced
-2 tablespoons chile powder
-1 tablespoon cumin
-1 tablespoon garlic powder
-1 teaspoon curry powder
-2 teaspoons kosher salt
-1 teaspoon black pepper

In a medium bowl, combine the yogurt with the lime zest and juice, chile powder, cumin, garlic powder, curry powder, salt and pepper.

Brush the cauliflower with the sauce.

Bake at 400 on a greased baking sheet until the surface is dry and lightly browned, 30 to 40 minutes. The marinade will make a crust on the surface of the cauliflower.

This cauliflower turned out impressively, but overall we weren't thrilled with it. The marinade was highly seasoned, a little too much. The marinade made far too much, we had a ton of leftovers and were sorry we had wasted the yogurt. Dave chopped up some of the leftover cauliflower to make breakfast tacos, which he enjoyed (I didn't). After a few days I removed as much of the marinade as I could and made some Buffalo Cauliflower "Wings". If you really enjoy curry this would be a good recipe for you, we were just disappointed.
