Roasted cauliflower with turmeric and cumin

This is a side dish that I make regularly to accompany indian dishes.  Even those who don't really like cauliflower usually appreciate it when prepared in this fashion.

- 1 large cauliflower
- Turmeric
- Cumin seeds
- Cayenne (or chili) pepper
- Olive oil
- Salt

Preheat oven at 400F (200C) and position rack in lower third of oven.

Cut cauliflower into florets, wash, drain and transfer into a large bowl with a lid.  Generously sprinkle with turmeric, add approximately one teaspoon of cumin seeds and some chili powder or cayenne pepper (optional).  Salt to taste, add ¼ cup olive oil, close the lid and mix well.

Spread in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake approximately 20 minutes (10 minutes on each side) or until cauliflower is browned, but not cooked through (you want to keep it a little al dente).
