Keto Indian-Spiced Roasted Cauliflower with Almonds

This flavor-packed cauliflower side dish may just take center stage thanks to fragrant Indian spices, fresh herbs, zesty lemon, and crunchy toasted almonds. Be warned, it's addictive!

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Scatter the almonds in a single layer in a pie tin or on a cookie sheet and toast, shaking pan a few times during cooking, until light golden-brown and fragrant, 6 to 8 minutes.
  • Increase the oven to 425°F (200°C). Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  • Place the cauliflower on the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with the olive oil then sprinkle on the garam masala, coriander, turmeric, chili powder, salt, and pepper. Toss to coat, then scatter into a single layer.
  • Roast, tossing a few times during cooking, until the cauliflower is fork tender and deep golden-brown around the edges, 25 to 30 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven, then add the lemon zest and juice. Toss to combine.
  • Garnish with the toasted almonds and cilantro and serve.

  1. This is really really good!! I didn’t have slivered almonds so I used pepita’s as a substitute and the whole thing was delicious!

    • Thank you for the kind words, Laura. We’re so happy you like the recipe!

  2. 5 stars
    Delish. Full of flavor and super easy dinner side dish. I like mixing all the spices, oil and cauliflower in a bowl first, then spread it out on the the baking sheet
