Roasted Curry Cauliflower With Mint Yogurt Dip

During the winter months, we got really into curry flavors. We were using curry on just about everything. It’s just a warming flavor and it really elevates the taste of a lot of dishes. This Roasted Curry Cauliflower With Mint Yogurt Dip is no exception.

We’ve been trying to eat more plants and less meat recently, especially in appetizer dishes. Vegetables make such great appetizers – and this one pairs so well with the dipping sauce.

The cauliflower is roasted at 350 degrees F for about 20 minutes to get it tender, and then you crank up the heat right at the end to get the perfect crispy, roasted pieces. The cooling of the mint yogurt pairs perfectly with the kick of the warm curry.

The dipping sauce comes together with just a few ingredients while the Roasted Curry Cauliflower bakes in the oven. While this recipe isn’t vegan, it’s so easy to switch out the Greek Yogurt for a plant-based yogurt to make it vegan-friendly!

We recently served this for a get-together with our in-laws and it was a total hit. It’s low effort but high in flavor.
