Special cauliflower roasted in turmeric oil with black nigella seeds

This is quick-and-easy cauliflower made a bit special.

The key ingredients are the turmeric which has a wonderful earthy, musky flavour; and the nigella seeds which also have a sort of earthy bitterness, which brings out the nuttiness of the cauliflower. You can find out more about nigella seeds here.

Be careful with the turmeric though, you don’t want it on your clothes, it stains like crazy.

This way of doing cauliflower is best served fresh from the oven – it doesn’t heat up well because it loses its crispiness and goes soggy when left to rest.  It also doesn’t freeze.

If you have any left over, add to a salad, together with some feta.
