Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
Cut the cauliflower into small florets or break it into pieces the size of popped popcorn. Reserve the stalks for another use or toss them in the compost.
In a large bowl, combine the olive oil, paprika, cumin, turmeric, and salt and season with pepper. Add the cauliflower and toss to coat.
Spread the cauliflower on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 35 to 50 minutes, until golden brown and crisp, stirring occasionally. Remove from the oven and leave on the baking sheet to cool completely, about 30 minutes.
Recipe Testers' Reviews
This spicy roasted cauliflower was extremely tasty as a side dish and would be great as part of a tapas meal. Tons of flavor from all that spice!
This spicy roasted cauliflower was a family pleaser. We all loved it and it disappeared pretty fast. Breaking the cauliflower into small pieces is what took the longest while making this. I think I could have added a bit more of the seasoning. After 20 minutes the cauliflower was fully cooked. I left it in the oven hoping it would crisp but after 45 minutes it still was not crunchy so I turned the oven to broil for 3 minutes, turned them a bit, and then broiled them for 2 more minutes. The end result was a very addictive, healthy little snack.
